Hello everyone, My name is Mary and I live in RI.  I have recently gotten interested in DIY projects and woodworking.  I got the Kreg Jig Master System and the Dremel Trio for Christmas.  My first project was to make a bird feeder (my brother is helping me).  It was so much fun.  I am hoping to learn a lot from everyone here.  : )

Hello All,

 

My name is Paul and I am located in Fort Worth Tx. I do not have much woodworking experience. I have slowly been building up my tools and watching many videos to see how different techniques are done. I am currently working on a coffee table for myself and hope to build a microwave cabinet soon. I hope to learn from others and pass on what I learn to another new person down the road. I also do photography in my spare time.

Hello All

 My name is Doug & I live just north of Detroit Mi. I've always been a DIY type of person & for the past couple of years or so I've gotten into woodworking. So far I have only made several book shelves & an entertainment center nothing fancy just practical. As for Kreg equipment I have an older style K2 set, The Bench Klamp plate set-up with 3” & 6” Klamps, and a Precision Track & Stop System for my miter saw.

Any pointers would be great.  thank you Ron.
Hello. My name is Tim and I live is south east Michigan. I have been enjoying woodworking for about 2 years now. I found a woodworking class and have used pocket screw joinery in class and just purchased  a master set. I hope to use this quite often.
Recently retired, I work out of my garage here in S California.  I love wood projects and want to build an office desk for my wife.  Are there any great plans, pictures, or pictures out there?

Hi all!

I am Dennis and live in Illinois. I am a supervisor by trade for an OEM of automotive products. I have always enjoyed working with wood and have just begun to build some rustic furniture out of cedar logs. I am using the pocket hole joinery to build the furniture. I look forward to learning from all of you.

I am an artist by trade, mostly painting and sculpting.  In my younger days I used hand tools to build small projects, such as bookshelves and small cabinets.  I am looking forward to using my jig to build things my wife has been asking me to build for years.

 

Howdy Y'all!  My name is Jeff, I live in Hattiesburg, MS and I have enjoyed my Kreg jig for about a year now.  My last project was to join several pieces of African Mahogany together to form a new top for my wife's dresser.  The old top had been destroyed during our house fire 6 years ago.  We had kept it with the hope of replacing it one day.  Well I manned up and created a very nice reproduction of the original. Had some hurdles but the end product was awesome.
Howdy, My name is Don and I live just outside Shreveport. I'm retired, about 3 years now, from Railroad Communications.  My other hobbies are Ham Radio, hunting and fishing and photographic.  A real novice at woodworking.  The wife wanted me to build some shelves for the activities room.  I though about how to do this and make it look good.  Then I though some more and had a plan working when I saw a Kregjig commercial on TV.  Boy what an eye opener. thing suddenly looked doable.  So I bought the KregJig system and some wood and screws and dove right in.  I've build myself a work bench, from plans off the web site, using the system.  Turned out OK for a newbie.  A few more learning projects and I'm going to tackle those shelves.
Hello, My name is Natalie I live in Agoura, CA. I used to do woodworking a lot in the past and I feel it's time to start back at it. I recently received the Kreg jig for X-mas and will be starting my first project tomorrow. I will be building a TV stand/cabinet.

I've been using my Adaptive Cutting System table for a few years now, and it's been really solid. This past week was the first time I ever needed to use the miter guide though.I was rebuilding some shelving in a tiny closet and I discovered the…Continue

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
