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.

Hi Dan,

I am originally from Newmarket, Ontario. I now live in Newport News, Virginia. I remember the difference when I moved to Virginia and could move a lot of my woodworking operations outside, except for maybe two winter months. Thought I would drop a line and say hello to a fellow Canadian.

By day I'm a mild mannered IT Geek who looks after about 500+ workstations, a 1/2 dozen servers! Woodworking is a great stress reliever for me. Unfortunately in my neck of the woods (Northern Ontario) my garage is not heated so my woodworking is limited to the warmer months, usually May - Sept/Oct and this year spring has come early so I'm about to start up again!
Hi there. New to the Kreg Jig Owner's community but not the jig itself. I work part-time at Woodcraft in Cincinnati and spend the rest of my time in my home shop, studying cabinetmaking at U.C. and hanging out with my young son. At Woodcraft I work the store but also teach classes and am developing a class now using the Kreg system to build a Shaker style end table.
What a great job that would be

Hello, I am a retired Navy SEABEE, Deep Sea Diver, and now living in Indianapolis Indiana. Presently i drive a flatbed semi hauling Steel Beams for a Steel Supply Company. My Hobbies are woodworking , of which i have turned a 2 car garage in to a full woodworking shop ( no car parking here) and Amateur Radio. Both get equal time but Christmas gifts in the fall take most of my spare time. Started using the Kreg fastening system and it has been very useful.
Just keep making saw dust!

I'm a web consultant, I design, build, maintain & manage web sites. I got my start in it because I was a store manager & webmaster for Performance Line Tool Center, but with the economy being what it is and restructuring/consolidation of the company (whereby my store was consolidated with the larger store and incidentally one of the largest in the nation, nearly 30,000 sq ft.), I am now a contractor/consultant to their website.

If you wouldn't mind, stop by their Kreg section for your Kreg tool & accessory needs (help to fund them to help me feed my need for tools LOL!).

I love my Kreg jig! I cannot believe how much I have used it for simple projects around the house.

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…
