This is my first build with the Kreg jig. I've had it since last Christmas (2010). Sad I know. It was a little intimidating at first but I just went out in the garage and grabbed two boards and started practicing. I got a little inspiration from the Shanty sisters, http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/2012/01/20-shelves-anyone-can-build.html. These shelves are so similar to the ones at Pottern Barn and are on my "to do" list. http://www.potterybarn.com/search/results.html?words=shelves&cm_sp=OnsiteSearch-_-GlobalNav-_-Button&type-ahead-viewset=ecom. The plans were pretty easy to follow. I did watch the utube video several times which helped quite a bit. Not to mention the guy building it was pretty darn cute. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5FOx3bTo3G4 :)
The board on the left has the proper amounts of holes. The one on the right may have 1 or 2 too many. Oops!
I don't have pictures of the actual building process because once I got going I was in a groove.
Once I figured out which directions the holes should go and which depth to drill the holes it went really quickly. I love using the Kreg jig and won't use a countersink and putty again. Ana White also has a great tutorial on using the Kreg jig. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9F5wr-cmalM Love her!
One last tip would be - don't leave your car in the garage with the top down while you're drilling your holes or cutting your wood. *&^%@ I just washed and vacuumed out my car!
