I saw this jig on Facebook today and it went immediately on my Christmas list! How long has this jig been out? Makes plugs to fill pocket holes. Basic kit makes plugs for standard pocket-holes and HD pocket-holes. You have to purchase a micro bit separately. Check it out…..standard kit# and the micro bit. If you own one, please comment on what you think of the jig.
During the Winter of 2000, I worked at a cabinet shop while in college. My introduction to pocket hole joinery was using a Porter Cable Pocket Cutter. Since then, I have been spoiled and have hated using Kreg jigs due to the tear out on the hole and the angled pilot hole that makes it hard to keep the surface flush . So I decided to build my own pocket hole cutter based on what I remember of the Porter Cable version I used 15+ years ago. Here is a link to the video https://www.youtube.com/...
DIY solution to using the mini Kreg pocket hole jig on 1.5” thick lumber. It’s simple and easy to build. It’s made from shop cutoffs and a little common hardware. It even makes the mini jig easier to use on 3/4 stock. Sometimes the simple things work well. https://youtu.be/mr1jDFCXHt8
First order of business today was to fix those tubafore supports in the table top. It was tedious, but easy. I clamped it to my bench, unscrewed the studs one at a time and using some clamps and a few select words, screwed them back into place to make sure they were flush with the bottom of the poplar frame boards. With that out of the way and off my mind, I turned to the bottom box (which is really nothing more than a glorified shelf and a place to attach the legs). Like it’s big brother ...
After letting the lumber acclimate for a week, I’m back in the shop, ready to work on the Lego Table. During the time I waited, I worked on other projects (The New Sawhorses, and Mallet 2.0). First order of business was to get the wood cut to length for the top and bottom boxes. I pulled out the miter saw station from hibernation and started cutting. Despite not being used for over a year, she worked just fine and in no time, I had my parts ready to go. I decided to use pocket hole scre...
So I used 2×1 poplar to frame out where I will house the router.. I will be using 3/4 MDF .. That’s next I will need to custom cut the MDF to fit and I’m just praying that I put the frame pieces in the right place so support the MDF and that it also looks symmetrical as Dara’s where the drawers will be going on the sides!
So I was building some drawers today with my long coveted pocket hole jig and kreg pocket hole screws. After watching numerous videos over the years I thought it would be magic in tool form – idiot proof. After struggling with shifting joints and split ends I had become all but disenchanted. So I took to the internet to look for a solution. Surely I couldn’t be the only one with this problem. Sure enough there were others. And yet other’s had answers. Clamps!!! (Alway...
Hello lumberjocks. I’m in the process of getting more organized with the use of a French cleat system in my shop. My latest addition is a finishing supply rack. It holds 32 cans of spray paint, 15 quart size cans, and some more finishing supplies. The benefit is that you can always see what you have at first glance. For those who are interested here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXc5jk2Do1s
I was able to almost entirely complete the printer stand today. I say almost as I have to cut two shelves for it that will be adjustable. I am saving that for later in the week as I have a large sheet of plywood I will have to cut for a table top and I will cut the shelves at the same time. This unit is made from 2×4s, and 1/2” plywood. The adjustable shelves I wan to be a little sturdier since they will be holding paper and such so they will be 3/4” plywood. All of th...
