Walt here, g'morning all. I've been doing a few things around the house for years, almost all of it building or repairing. Time to get into the details of things more along the lines of cabinetry and useful things without the pressure of closing it in and getting it functional. I find the Kreg tools rather handy and functional. Haven't retired yet so limited time along with other chores though goals will keep me focused. Have a wall in the living room that is begging for cabinet lowers and bookshelves above. One at a time just like you eat an elephant, one bite at a time.
Hi everyone. My name is Tom. I have been retired for about 3 1/2 years now. My woodworking skills were good 45 years ago. Since then I got a job, got married, had kids, travelled all over the world, lived in Geneva, Switzerland, watched my kids get married. I have six grandchildren with one on the way. My son built a home next to me. We have some acreage and I decided it was time to build a steel building 40' x 60'. We plan to have areas in it to house our lawn equipment, trailers, campers. An area for family gatherings with kitchen and restroom. A game/social area and a workshop area. We have some equipment and I felt it was time to get back in the saddle again. My son enjoys tinkering with projects and has made a few CNC machines plus work with 3D printers. I am hoping to get much advice and knowledge from this forum.
Outdoor furniture---tables, chairs, benches, storage.
Persue magazines and books, that show products that could be of use to you.
Book titled "The Pocket Hole Drilling Jig Project Book", by Canny Proulx, is a good source of info,
as well as others with similarity.
Do a google search---pocket hole projects plans, and the like.
Have fun planning and building.

Hello all my name is Phil. I live in Maryland, love music and want to build custom storage for my music - apothecary drawer cabinet for CD's and custom storage for music books and sheet music. But I am a complete newbie to woodworking so to start I want to use my K4 system to repair and strengthen existing bookcases and storage.
Hi my name is Elizabeth and I live in Georgia. I am retired and find myself doing DIY projects with my time.

Hello from Houston! My name is Tom -- my wife and I have been transplanted Iowans here in TX for the past 14 years. I grew up on a farm in Southeast Iowa where I spent many wintery days in my dad’s woodshop learning the craft from him. After getting married and raising a family, the woodworking bug has bitten me once again. I’ve been intrigued with the expanding Kreg system and I am pleased to say I am hooked! Just completed my first shelving project and have a ton of other ideas brewing – thanks to my wife of course! Glad to be a part of the community.
