Howdy all!  My name is Pat!

Greetings fellow enthusiasts. Jim from Seattle here. I am a DIYer who loves to build things but not so great at the finishing (as in the fine, detail finishing work). I have a nice Bosch router/table, and now the Kreg Jig Jr. along with the other basic tools and feel like I am ready to tackle more advanced projects, ala basic furniture pieces, etc. But I am still a novice when it comes to staining, sanding etc.

Hello,

I am a beginner wood worker. My first project is going to be rebuilding some kitchen cabinet drawers and replace the runners. The next one will be attempting to build some cope and stick cabinet doors. I just got the Kreg jig to rebuild the drawers.

 

Hello everyone, I'm Eric and have been eyeballing the Kregg for quite some time. Finally purchased one, so let the projects begin... First to be tackled is some organization items in our kids rooms. Though it probably won't stop the everything on the floor thing. It is a wishful thought...
Hi All,My name is Jerry. I've built my own home and consider myself a ruff carpenter.Bought the Kreg jig to repair some cabinets at work..I work for a school system in Michigan.. I also collect old fish lures and build display cabinets for them.I look forward  to try the Kreg jig on these and some other projects.I see from your projects there are  more uses then I can possibly think of.They all look great! Well here go's a big step in finish carpentry.Never to late to learn.   Jerry

My name is JW live in KY and have been working with wood and home improvements for as long as i can remember. I have been doing changes and upgrades to my current house since the first day i unlocked the door. Was built in 1908 and has more wood related projects than i can count on all my fingers and toes.

 

Am a single dad with 2 great kids that make me smile every day. One boy one girl and both are always excited to help with the next project.

 

Currently in the process of a full kitchen remodel that include opening a wall, adding new countertop space, cabinets, 2 tier peninsula, cooktop and double ovens. Oh yeah also removed a chimney from the kitchen and room above.

 

Refinished the front door about a year ago and was very pleased with the results. What do you think?

Hi my name is Pat, I live in Rocky mountain house, Alberta.  I have the pleasure of walking out my door every morning seeing the mountains, it's a great scenic view.  I love woodworking, especially since I just recently purchased my Kreg K4 master jig, it's a great asset to have in the shop.  The first weekend I built a cabinet and a wookbench for my shop.  I was really impressed with the speed and the strength of the pocket screw's.  Well it's my weekend off my normal job, but I actually work harder in my woodshop than I do at my real job, shhh dont tell, lol.   Have a great weekend everyone!
Nice looking door, great job!

Hello all.  My name is Steve and I live in northeast Louisiana.  I do a little woodworking from time to time.  I picked up a Kreg tool at Lowes and now need to learn how to best use it.  I have no experience with pocket hole joinery, and when I received an invitation to this forum I figured it would be a great place to get info on the use of the tool.

Howdy Robert

 

the pic is abit distorted. However there is more area above the lockset than most doors used today. The door is 3' x 7' as are the rest of the doors in the house execpt closets.

 

thanks

Miter Saw Recommendation

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

Miter saw stand

     Has anyone used one of the Kreg Universal Stand configurations as the base for a miter saw workstation with fold down wings?  I scrolled through the pics in the community and all I saw were using a DIY base cabinet.  I have an extra Kreg router…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…
