This has nice projects even someone just starting out will find they want to make. Simple instructions with enough drawings and measurements make it a must have for the new Kreg Jig owner. This will give you enough practice to make a few things and then move on to bigger and better projects with that ingenious jig.

The color pictures and exploded diagrams are an outstanding introduction and knowledge builder. Mr. Proulx full color pages helped me solve problems and understand better ways to use this great joinery technique.

I just love this book. I couldn't believe how easy it was to build one of these tables using Proulx's instructions and techniques. The Kreg jig is fabulous on it's own but these instructions make using it even easier.

I initially borrowed this book from the library but liked it so much I bought my own copy. Considering how expensive wood can be, it's well worth the money to have this to refer to.

From reading all the glowing reviews here, I thought this book would have more, and better plans. Most of this stuff seems to be outdated, and just plain dull. The bookcase I am extremely disappointed with. The one that comes with the Kreg Jig is better in my opinion. Still this book teaches you about pocket holes, and where they should be placed, etc, so for that I'd say it's worth it. Just add your own imagination to some of these plans, and you will be fine. Isn't that what woodworking is all about anyways?

Most of the book focuses on the Kreg Jig, but there are a couple different ones, including homemade. If you have just bought a Kreg Jig, and are new to pocket holes, this book is a great companion. I have not really found to many pocket hole books around, and most woodworkers seem to be prejudiced against pocket holes. I guess the purists do not like them for some reason, as they would rather wait for days for glue up's etc. The Kreg Jig makes one of the tightest joints I've ever seen, and makes most work fast, as glue really isn't even necessary, although I still use a bit.

A terrific book! Well written, clear, concise, with great color photos that speak volumes. Skip the Kreg TRIM CARPENTRY DVD, and buy this book instead.
Be well.

I really enjoy a good book of plans. I look for books with good pictures, measurements and clear instructions. This is a solid book.

This book was very helpful in some basic projects. I've made four of them. What I really like about the book is how clear the photos and instructions are. Also, because the projects seem to be built around learning about the jig, the projects are very expandable. If you are like me, you like a basic plan which you can play around with in order to get the final product that is unique to you. In doing the projects in the book, I learned a great deal and am very happy with at least three of them (opperator error of course!).

Great book for the beginner like me.

I notice this situation alot.. sometime in these books they like to advertise easy to follow simple to understand complete instructions.. well this book is better than most I've seen but it still lacks detail on some of the projects.. the truth is most who buy pocket hole jigs are those who have very little woodworking experience and need that extra help in details of the book and plan.. some of the projects in the book are nice and are good starters. the book also brings home the concepts of the pocket hole jig... this would be a great book for a beginner.. however if you already understand how to use a pocket hole jig.. shy away and buy something more challenging.. Danny Proux .. does a nice job with this Book!!

This book is not biased toward any particular brand of pocket hole jig and shows how to use a few of them, but most projects are built with the Kreg System.

It has some handy tips for making mitered corners and how to best use the pocket hole jig for that application, and has several design plans. I don't particularly like the style of the furniture but if you have your own style I'm sure you can innovate beyond these plans. One picky point I have is that there is one dining room hutch/cabinet in this book that has and angled face and cabinets, but the book skips right over the steps required to cut the angle in the face frames after they are built so that they mate together at an angle and create the beveled face of the cabinet. One thing you have to be careful with when using pocket hole screws is that if you want to plane or trim an assembled face frame or panel, you don't want to run a screw through your blades - they are hidden within and you have to remember where they are located before you start cutting. It appears that if you follow these plans exactly, the proper way to cut the face frame would be apparent, but it seemed like a critical step that at least requires more mention than simply skipping to the next step.

If you haven't used pocket hole screws before, this is a great book for ideas and should get you started pretty quickly.
