Hello everyone - my name is Bob.  I live in Amherst, OH - about 30 miles west of Cleveland right near Lake Erie.  Been woodworking for about 10 years now - making a variety of projects some large, some small. Drawing up plans now for an entertainment cente for the basement and plan on using the Kreg system for the faceframes.

 

Just recently got into woodcarving as well - so my time is torn between both hobbies - LOL!

 

Daytime job is Director if IT for our company - responsible for all aspects of our computer systems/networks/security and disaste recovery!

Hi,  I'm Bill from Stockport in the UK.  I've just bought a Kreg K4 Jig to make a series of workbenches for my musical instrument making supplies store.   I plan  to make a tool demo area in my shop where I'll let customers try out Kreg tools and guitar making tools.

Hello, My name is Ron and I live in Michigan. I have been wood working on off but have never been able to master joinery. So here I am a nubie with a pocket hole jig geting ready to get started anew.   

Hello Ronald.  I am from Michigan sort of.  I was born in St. Johns, The so called hub of Michigan.  Is that close to where you lived?  Jerry Carpenter.

Al St. Aubin, up in cold New Hampshire. Have had the Kreg jr for a couple of years and used it on a couple of small products. Just bought the Kreg Master kit. Getting ready to make a toy box, pirate chest cor my grandson. Will post as it progresses.
My name is Lisa and I live in NEPA and I just got married this summer.  I'm most experienced with a band saw of all tools, and have built myself a variety of helpful household items in the past.  My dad taught me how to use his tools, and has just about anything  I've ever needed to craft with.  I've built a step stool, a book shelf, some country shelves, a curling iron holder, trophy shelf and other crafts.  I haven't built anything in about 10 years, but I wanted to build some items for my new home, like a coffee table or end table and a computer desk, but I wasn't sure I'd know how.  When I saw KregJig on TV, it made me feel like it might be possible.  I just received my master kit and can't wait to try it out!  There are some great ideas everyone has shared.  I look forward to completing and sharing some projects of my own.

Hello Lisa and welcome

 

I am Robert Brennan and live in Brisbane Australia.

 

Congratulations on your recent wedding.

 

Some humour :

 

I didnt know Kreg made Pink jigs tee hee, anyway where is NEPA I tryed to "google " it and found nothing.

 

You will have lots of fun with your new Kreg Jig, just make sure you clamp the edges well as the angled screws tend to move the joint as they screw in.

 

Here is my latest build a tool cupboard

NEPA is short for North Eastern Pennsylvania.  I think we are the only state that refers to ourselves by the initials instead of the name, like we say we live in "PA" haha.  Around here people use the term NEPA  often to refer to our area.  It includes the Poconos and the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton area that I live in.  Thanks for the welcome :)
I just want to say welcome to ALL newcomers in advance....... have a good one. keep on makin dust
Ditto - Jerry Carpenter

Hi my name is Don and I have just retired. I have built a number of things ( porches, pavilions est.) that didn't require finished work as I call it.   After seeing program on Television said.  I think I can do that.  so here I am.
Hello, I'm Loretta.  I have been interested in woodworking since I took woodshop in the 5th grade.  I have just started to make furniture (book cases, cabinets, etc.) for myself and I was hesitant in doing dovetailing, so I bought the KregJig so that I could skip that for now...

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

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?

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…
