I love my Kreg jig. I have the step- up from this one that I paid $39 for. I have two suggestions for first time users in reference to photo 3. First, clamp your stock to your bench. More importantly, clamp 2 pieces of scrap wood along the sides of the jig to keep it from rotating when the bit grabs the wood.

The person In the picture is squeezing the jig w/ his hand to keep the jig from rotating. This could be potentially dangerous if you have to collar on the bit set to drill too deep. You risk having your fingers under the board gouged if the bit goes too far.

If regret not buying the $99 kit. It has more versatility and easier set up. The jig is wider and has 4 holes. With this jig, you have to unclamp and reclamp on each hole when using wider stock.

I made a rolling kitchen island using my Kreg jig and it came out fantastic. I used 3/4" poplar for the framing and 2x2" for the legs and mounted rubber casters for smooth movement. the counter top is a peice of 4x 2.5' butcher block. If you are even thinking about buying a Kreg jig I would strongly reccomend that you get it, it is fantastic!

Pocket screws are the easiest way to do projects that are going to be painted as I buy the cheap pine plugs to put in the pocket screw holes, sand and paint; no one is wiser.
