G'day,

I am Peter Watkins - a Retired ATC - who is living on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland Australia

My wife and I are in the process of downsizing and have a house being built which is about half way along - Roof on and walls currently being clad

I am a surfer and surf most days

I will be querying a few things as I construct an island benchtop 3 m x 1 m [10' x 3'4"] out of Tasmanian Oak - but I have had the Kreg for quite a few years so I have some experience with using it for cabinet work

Hello, My name is Paula and I have just found a new love of woodworking. I basically know nothing and am soaking up info like a sponge. Just today at Home Depot I learned from a customer in the isle I was on the difference between galvanized and machine made nuts and bolts. See how new I am?  I’m hoping to learn a lot from reading all your posts!

HI, My name is Neil... I'm a part time whittler... and i wish i could ditch my job and do it full time. I cant look at something hand made without trying to figure out how they built it, or how long it took. Woodworking is very addictive. I've seen some great projects on this site, i hope i can add something that stands up to the standard

Hello, I'm Renee I live in North Las Vegas, NV.   I have no experience in working with wood, but have always wanted to.  I'm retired US Army and have decided to treat myself to this as a hobby.. I did my research on Kreg tools and other products and feel Kreg would be a great fit and easier for me as an inexperience woodworker. 

I purchased the Kreg Jig K4 approx 2-3 yrs ago after seeing it on TV and never used it.  Recently I purchased the Adaptive cutting system and other items and feel now I am ready to get started. 

I look forward, and I'm happy to work within this community.   Here goes......

Hi

john in Las Vegas.  Just got the different tools from the company. I would like to know how to set up my blind hole.  I want to place a sheet of 3/4 in onto the 2 by 4. What setting for the drill length and the setting on t drilling jig?

My name is Greg Smith. I live in Milton Florida.  I have just started doing wood work and really have enjoyed the Kreg line of products.  I plan to use this website for hints and ideas. Thanks.

Hi Renee,

I am also retired too. 20 years as a bartender in a major hotel on the strip. I spent 6 year in the Nevada National Guard  50 ton tank driver and a Tank commander for one summer camp before I got  out. I enjoy doing wood working when I was not working in hotel work. I did some work doing small cabinets and what every the people wanted. My Grandpa was handy with tools and building things. When I am doing my woodworking I forget everything but my tools and wood.  I think I made my first small box in the 6 grade. I got wood working books like Workbench and looked the pictures how they were made and when it came to make thing out of wood I came easy
