One of the reasons that I started getting so excited working with wood this summer was because of my purchase of a Kreg Jig. I was introduced to this tool at the IBM Day of Service by a few folks that built furniture as a hobby. With it we were able to build a quite nice cabinet out of 3/4″ furniture grade plywood without any additional supports.
I’ve used this on the coffee table and the white board frame that I’ve built so far, and I’ve got many other projects in mind that this will come in handy for. It’s definitely the kind of tool that opens up new avenues of construction, even for the novice like myself.
Highly recommended. Available from Amazon, or locally at Lowes in this neck of the woods.
