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, Im from Nebraska but spend much of my time in wyoming. I am a machinist for a class1 railroad. I repair main line failed locomotives and railcars. So I cover alot of ground,But in my free time which is very limited I love to do woodworking. Im really just kind of getting started relearning everything I have forgotten over the years. I equate my day job to that of a paramedic. Slow most of the time but it's always an emergency when we get a call. I really enjoy seeing what someone has made from almost nothing and the skill and knowledge that they must have. I hope the best for all and keep up the awesome projects!

I love bluegrass and play it when I have the opportunity.  I also learned the Chet Atkins style when I was a teenager and still play it today.  I have recently been inspired by the Australian guitarist, Tommy Emmanuel.  Have you hear of him?

I work for local government as a Housing Rehabilitation Specialist, which is just another name for a residential contractor.  I have been involved in residential construction & woodworking for over since about 1974.  My day to day work involves overseeing the rehabilitation of homes and designing and building new homes for low-income families.  I do woodworking as a hobby.

I am also a guitarist.  My son, Marc Broussard, is a recording artist currently with Atlantic Records.  I have had the great pleasure of performing with him on many occasions in the past years.  I play mostly jazz & R&B.

No ....don't have the heart to charge....I used to build various things and put them in a large flea market...the owner always said I priced things too cheap...hard for me to charge for labor on a birdhouse I built out of scraps...I guess I will never get rich at this but it is very good for me to stay active and challenged

check out woodwmith magazine . com they have an video segment for their articles and one of them is building a tile top table.  I haven't built one yet but they certainly make it look easy

Commercial chemical sales

I am a retired Policeman, I started woodwork as a way of relaxing, I was taught a lot by my then Father in law who was a Joiner by trade. I have been doing it on and off for thirty years or more, and thoroughly enjoy it. It is mainly a winter activity for me, but will turn my hand to anything.

I use a lot of reclaimed timber, because in Spain, timber is very expensive, which surprised me considering the number of pine forests about! 

wow all the way from Spain this is incredible,I would have tio saythat this is farhest away anyone has replied to this posting

Would like to see your woodwrking
