I have alwasy wanted to make a rolled top desk.   Maybe one of these days.  Looks good finished.

Hello, My name is Mario and I live NW North Carolina, I started woodworking at the age of 11, making toys and small furniture. also build and repaird boats done cabinet work and house remodeling.

Getting ready to remodel a hitchen cabinet, thats why i get the Kreg tool.

Thnaks for the welcome.  Why did Kreg change the manufacturer for their pocket screws?  The older ones had a thinner shaft, better machined and held the square drive better.  The square drive slips out of the new screws and rounds he driver quite rapidly.  Are the older screws still manufactured and is there a source them

Thanks

roll top desk shouldn;t be too hard. The tambor is a cloth with slats affixed with glue. the track for the tambor is done with a router. The rest is pretty basic.  probably get plans on line or at the library. try it. it should be fun. TF
Hey, Jigman. I seem to spend most of my time on projects requiring some type of jig or another. If you don't take time to jig up correctly it will usually cost you a piece of good wood. If you have a knack for jigs your in the right hobby. TF

Hello everyone,   I am jigman,   now that name comes from two sources.  One is woodworking and the other is fishing.    It seems I am always making some sort of jig to get something done in wood working.  I think we all do that.  The other is fishing.   Jigging is one form of fishing that we do for saltwater fishing.   I have been doing wood working for years and  I am self taught.  I will never be a craftsman in the field of woodworking.    I just see  what I want to make and make it.  Nothing special about that.  

I make jigs all the time.  Most are disposable after I use them.  They are usually speciality jigs.   I made one for my drillpress to drill holes for a bookcase shelves.  It finally warped over the years.  I will have to make another stronger one.  I will be doing a couple or more bookcases this summer.  Now not all my jigs are for wood working.   I make all kinds of things in my small shop.  
 I plan on taking my drawing desk design and making it into a roll top desk on my next one.   It wil be used for a fishing tackle work station.  I will see which type top will work best.

Hello everyone.  I have been looking at all of the beautiful work and decided I would join this group so I can comment and maybe ask a question once in a while.  I should have gotten one of these Kreg jigs years ago. What a genius tool.  My name is Mitch Poland.
IM Adrian And I just started to cut me some wood, Im looking for some plans to start using my Kregg Jig.

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…
