Hi folks.  I am Chris and I just retired in Ontario, Canada.  Couple hours due north of Syracuse NY.  I now have the time to try the things I always wanted to.  I bought  a Master kit after seeing what it could help me do.  So far so good.  Quality fit and finish and easy.  My hats off to members who have posted their projects, their plans and their advice.

I am looking forward to gaining the experience to become an advice giver, rather than seeker.  Keep up the good work and keep sharing!

Hey Chris welcome aboard. I find Kreg products to be extremely useful and relatively easy to use. I have built a few projects with them and that is my "go to" if I need a Jig.

My name is Todd, live in Perth , Western Australia . Saw the pocket hole system on YouTube, so bought it and keen to get started. I do a fair bit of metal working and wood working will be mostly new to me. 

Hello. Steve and I am retired and spend a lot of time at my house in Vermont, where my shop is.  Although having built a home myself and completely rehabbing 2 200+ year old homes, I’m somewhat familiar with wood.  But I consider myself a novice at actual woodworking eg furniture.

Looking forward to building lots of furniture and projects for kids and grand kids.

Hi, my name is Ken Hunt, I am an expat from the UK now, living in the Philippines. I am a beginner to wood work, apart from what I learnt back in High School. I have been ready up on Kreg tools and what they do for you and I am impressed. So I thought very slowly I would try and start making things for the house. That is why I joined Kreg Owners Community to learn from them also. 

I have to confess though, you guys from America are lucky in that you have a great choice of tools, wood and kreg products to choose from, unlike here as its hard to find what you need, like wood that has been cut straight or is not bowed in any way. But we will see how it goes. 

Hi, My name is Leah and I live in NH. I am pretty new to woodworking so i dont know much but can figure things out usually. I bought a house and am very determined to make a few different things such as bed frame, Dog kennel and table. i am really interested in learning some great techniques  or things to look out for so if you have any pointers send them my way :)

Hi, my name is Marshall and I'm a woodworker...sort of.

I play around with my woodworking in spurts. Now that I am retired I have more time to spend on woodworking but I also have smoking meat, reading and Ham radio to occupy my time so sometimes it may get neglected and I may go for a month without doing any woodworking.

I live in NE Florida and have a crowded garage shop which gets shared with my son's car stuff and whatever the wife stores in there. I really need a mobile setup that I can store in the garage and move out into the driveway to work on projects. So that is why I want to move to the Adaptive Cutting System as soon as I can save up the money and it becomes available.

Hoping to learn from you guys. I need a lot of small projects that I can do so that i can show SWMBO that I'm serious about this. She thinks I just spend money and don't make anything. I got to prove her wrong.

Hi KregRep. I am getting a couple of people wanting me to reply specifically to them, they want to show me something. Like the one from Brinda Ashley who goes by the name of Camila Layla. And Michael Flanagan. What is up with these? They ought to be banned okay. I get msg's from this site which is okay, but for legit purposes. Can you do something about this?

Hi, Michael.  It bothers me too when these things happen.  If you click on the name of the poster you can see all their posts, and this Brenda or Camila has done this before, many times.  I don’t know why the list monitor allows this stuff to get through; it has nothing to do with the purpose of this group.  It bothers me too.  Roy.
