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 everyone. My name is Terry from Farmington, Missouri. I'm a Vice President of a community bank working with commercial loans and getting ready to open up our first branch. I love what I do but I love woodworking even more. I won't do projects for anyone else except for my family. For me it takes to joy out of woodworking when I have to be concerned about it being someone elses project. My projects don't always end up "perfect" so when it's for me only I know of any mistakes. I just try to learn from my mistakes and do better next time.
Hi! I'm David From Mississippi. I am a sheet metal contractor. This is something I've been doing all my life. I've always liked trying things with wood but never had the time to actually have a project to work on to improve my skills. I can build just about anything from metal, but thats my job. I wanted a hobby besides hunting and fishing. I just had a new house built and now have plenty of woodworking projects to keep me busy at night and Saturdays. I hope to learn a lot from guys who are more into the work than I am. I can tell you working with wood is a a challenge when you have to buy all new tools to work with. You cant cut wood with tin snips.
Tim Yep.. I am over behind the speedway. It will be 9 years in August. I have seen a few of those floating around the shop here. Glad to see another Local guy.

I am the IT Director for the Richard Petty Driving Experience. Woodworking is a great break away from computers all day long. Is it bad though that I spend ALOT of time on the computer reading, watching and writing about woodworking. I should probably spend some more time in the shop. :)
Retired Middle School Principal. Not sure if I miss the 1200 6 -8th grade wonderful kids. But sure miss the activity and reaffirmation of the joys of life they demonstrate.

DAYTIME JOB: I've owned a burglar alarm company for 31 years now. We cater to new construction, so I'm always around carpenters and the " trades". About 5 years ago, a customer called me because she had enclosed her patio and needed the new windows and door connected to the alarm. The construction was so bad ( I mean really bad) I offered to tear it out and redo the whole room. It turned out great, so I started doing remodeling for anyone I can. I'ts turned out to be a lot of fun and lucrative at the same time.
Retired Respiratory Therapist. Woodworking since 1975. I do remember punch cards.
I'm a retired pastor and adjunct professor at Mount Vernon Nazarene University. Worked construction while in seminary, and had woodworking as a hobby since I was in high school.
Hi Jens, Great thread For the past 40 odd years I have been and still am a Denturist here in western Canada. So by day make Dentures and in the evening and spare time I butcher wood, which I find is a great stress reliever. I enjoy cabinet making and carving.
You two guys just became my favorite friends on here...lol...seriously though...would love to find a way to incorporate my woodworking skills into the NASCAR world...

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…
