Good Evening All,
Thank you for allowing me to join your group and I hope to be able to progress my skills, with your help, and may even be able to assist others.
My name is John Culshaw, and I live just outside of Leicester, in the United Kingdom.
I spent just under 29 years in the Royal Air Force working as an aircraft propulsion technician and later a mechanical technician working on both propulsion and airframe systems.
I have always wanted to make my own furniture, bedside cabinets, book shelves, kitchen cupboards and the like, nothing to complicated, just yet.
I am not sure how I found out about Kreg and pocket hole joinery, but I found it remarkable and appears a lot easier than other methods for the type of furniture making I had in mind.
My first project was some kitchen type cabinets for the garage to hide some white goods. I bought some 18mm MDF sheet and after checking the instructions and different sources, I started.
It was the first few joints, see attached that shows the MDF splitting when joining the pieces together. I changed the type of screw so I have now used coarse and fine threads with the same results. I checked the settings and all appears to be correct.
What am I doing wrong?
