My newest love when it comes to working with pallet wood is the Kreg Jig. If you’re not familiar with this amazing tool, I’ll fill you in.
It comes in a nice storage case with a small amount of assembly. It only took a few minutes and it was ready to go. Also included with the system was a DVD which explains everything you need to know to start your first project. Just pop the DVD into your DVD player or PC and you’ll have everything you need to know at your fingertips.
It was a little intimidating at first, but after watching the DVD a few times I was confident enough to give it a try.
This system allows you to drill pocket holes to make joining two pieces of wood tightly with or without glue. I’ve worked on a few projects and I really don’t feel gluing is needed. Why deal with messy glue if you don’t have to.
The best part it hides the screws and nails. No more unsightly nail or screw heads. The Kreg Jig leaves you with a nice finished piece.
There’s really nothing to it. Simply use the easy setup guide to adjust the settings. Then, place a board into the Kreg Jig and snap in place. The board should fit snug in place.
The Kreg Jig needs to be clamped tightly to your work area.
Using the Kreg Jig drill bit, drill the number of holes needed.
Insert Kreg Jig Screws into the holes and screw the two pieces of wood together to create a strong bond.
It’s amazing how strong the Kreg Jig joins two pieces of wood.
The Kreg Jig takes the place of pricey tools and replaces it with a system more durable and easy to use.
