Kreg Jig

Introduction: Kreg Jig

A Kreg Jig is a type of tool used to join wood. Kreg Jigs can help you drill what are known as pocket holes, which allow screws to be inserted at an angle. Because the screws run along the grain of the wood rather than through it, the joint will be much stronger and more secure. (https://www.wikihow.com/Use-a-Kreg-Jig)

Step 1: Step 1: Stabilize

To begin this project you must be sure that you secure the kreg jig. The way you secure the kreg jig is by grilling screws into the table by the four holes on each four conners of the kreg jig.

Step 2: Step 2: Set Correct Measurements

First to check is the stepped drill bit. To find what length this should be is to measure the width oh the board. Then use the small tool to losen the the metal to the same thickness of the width of the piece of wood. Also on the kreg you will find a block that moves up and down though measurements also have to match the thickness of the board.

Step 3: Step 3: Clamping Wood

Next step is to clamp wood into the kreg, place wood in between then push down to secure wood. May need to screw small clamp for a tighter fit.

Step 4: Step 4: Driling Holes

Once wood is clamped down now you put stepped drill bit into drill and drill away!!!
