Hi - My name is Dolores and I live in the beautiful Missouri Ozarks.  I have been woodworking for about 25 years.  I mostly build furniture and especially enjoy designing and building something to fit a specific place or use - something you can't buy at a store.  I have used biscuits and dowels in the past but got a Kreg Master System for Christmas and look forward to learning to use it better.

Hello Ray. I too shop at Woodcrafters in Manchester, and I also have a Shopsmith (520 upgrade) with bandsaw and jointer. I use a seperate belt/spindle sander along with other periferals.  I also purchase wood from Moore Bros. Sawmill in Bloomfield. All rough cut and both kiln dried and air dried. Give them a try

Hello all. My name is John and I live way up north in the upper peninsula of Michigan. Recently retired disabled, and want to get a little more into woodworking. My wife bought me a Kreg jig a bit ago, and I just used it to build a pantry cabinet in our dining room. What a fantastic tool. It made things so simple to do. I can't wait to start on the wall unit she has planned for our living room. I think....

Bill,

You might want to check out a merchant called www.hardwaresales.com  They typically have good prices and almost always FREE shipping.  They are located in the state of Washington as I recall.

I've always found them to be fast and inexpensive.  They carry quite a bit of the Kreg line of screws, tools, etc.

Good luck.

Steve

 Hi ,

  My name is Neil and I have shopped around for project plans myself and you can get them online. Just get onto Google page and type in either CABINET PLANS ORBIRDHOUS PLANS OR OUTDOOR FURNITURE PLANS. I hope this works for you.

 Hi my name is Neil from Roanoke, Va.  For the plans you are looking for go to Google and search for either Cabinet plans , birdhouse plans or outfurniture plans . I hope this works for you.

Greetings from Tinley Park, IL. My name is Kevin. I'm a beginning wood worker. Made a bunch of bird feeders/houses. A few whirligigs. Custom fishing rod racks. Several outdoor Adirondack style rocking chairs. Other various decorative items.  I just posted pics of my first Kreg Jig project. It's a cedar curved firepit bench. Loved using the Kreg Jig. Over one hundred drilled on my first job!

Good Morning!  My name is Wolfgang and live outside of Atlanta.  I took a very long break from Woodworking while raising my children, so I am just really getting into things.  For my first Kreg Jig project, I made a cutting table for my wife.  For any project I start, look at, or entertain, I look to my Kreg Jig first for holding things together.

 

 

That look great Wolfgang. I guess  woodworking is like riding a bike you never forget.

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…
