Kreg Owners' Community

I just began two months ago. My wife bought me a compound miter saw and said, "You've been talking about getting into woodworking since I've know you. Here, go make some sawdust." I know have a fairly well equipped little shop and I'm learning by videos and communities like this one and LumberJocks.com.

I have liver cancer and I started woodworking as a therapy, mentally, physically and spiritually. IT WORKS! I thank God for this blessing. I am blogging about my experience at Woodworking For Therapy . I hope to encourage others to try woodworking as a form of therapy and encourage them to chose to Live, not just waste away.

I've never made a pocket joint so I just picked up a Kreg Jig Jr. I found a plant stand that I want to build using all pocket screw joints. The plans are free at Plant Stand

I hope to get started on this soon.

Steve I know what you mean about therapy. I've got a stressful job and although I can't compare to your story, I can certainly attest to the fact that I am in complete euphoria when I'm in my little shop (my basement) and forget about the stresses in life. Your first project looks great. Keep up the great work,

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.

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…
