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.

I am a Pennsylvania State Parole Agent, for the Philadelphia District Sex Crimes Unit.

Parole, I was a Sergeant on the Death Row Unit at SCI Graterford for almost six years. 
Hi, I am Steve from North Carolina. I am a financial controller for a wood products manufacturer. Woodworking is a good way for me to relieve stress and focus on something other than work. I particularly like repairing or restoring wood furniture (other peoples castoffs) and making cabinets of various designs. With my first grandson on the way, I expect many of my future projects will be with him in mind.
I am the President of a credit union in Vermont. I have had a desire to get into woodworking since early childhood when i wanted to build a birdhouse and didn't have the tools or ability to do so. Even though i am clearly a beginner i love the hobby and it provides me with an escape from work that is nice to have. i know we are here to necessarily plug Kreg products, but man these are a pure joy to work with. The craftsmanship and precision helps offset for some of my inexperience i do believe.
Hi I'm Craig from Calgary, Canada. I work as a web developer and designer. After pushing pixels around all day it is kind of nice to build something that exists in the everyday three-dimensional world...

Haha!! I retired from the computer world three years and I spanned from punched cards (mainframes) to PCs - almost 40 years of it...I've had it!!!!. I still keep current in computer stuff and recently have become interested in toying around with Arduino - Open Source. I also have time to devote to my wood shop. I must admit that the Kreg tools have made a difference and I really need to get the new Kreg Micro Jig. I am in New Jersey.

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.

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…
