Kreg Owners' Community

Just thought I would start a discussion on woodworkers real jobs. It would be fun to no if there are lots of professional people using Kreg Jig along with people  like myself a retired  construction worker.

Hello Kreg-Jiggers

I am a housebound husband and son, getting close to retirement from a life of tooling, process and quality engineering in the automotive and mining industries, who is now caring for wife and mother that have various (serious) ailments.

Taking up woodworking in small garden potting shed when I came across a tatty (old) jig at a car boot sale a few weeks ago as I thought it would be useful to make shelving for various bits of accumulated lengths of timber and many years of accumulated "junk" that I don't want to throw away as I might need it tomorrow.

 

"May your joints be strong.

I'm Roger from Quebec, Qc, Canada

I am a picture framer, but above all I am a lover of the wood work.

Nah! As long as you remember to switch off before your final approach...................
I'm a teacher although I grew up in construction and ran my own remodeling business for several years.

I live in Southern CA and I am an Emergency Room nurse, Trauma Unit, had some time off due to my daughter's illness, back in the saddle. The time off, really wasn't time off, My daughter needed a full time nurse, 24/7 and I wouldn't have it any other way :). I've worked 7p7a for 16+ years, and have always been a night person.

Woodworking is a great stress release .

Thanks again all for the stories.

Miter Saw Recommendation

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?

Miter saw stand

     Has anyone used one of the Kreg Universal Stand configurations as the base for a miter saw workstation with fold down wings?  I scrolled through the pics in the community and all I saw were using a DIY base cabinet.  I have an extra Kreg router…Continue

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…
