I was contemplating how to build a strong, sturdy storage
cabinet to hold my finishes. I did not
want a metal cabinet but wanted the adjustability of a metal cabinet’s shelves,
as well as a surface on the shelves that could be cleaned easier than wooden
We caught up with Scott Phillips of The American Woodshop and Scott Schaaf, Kreg’s Director of Product Management at the AWFS 2013 Fair in Las Vegas, where they unveiled the details about the all new K5 Jig from Kreg. Available for ordering now at Woodcraft, shipping in September, this versatile, easy-clamp system for drilling pocket hole joinery for various wood sizes is made easier than ever before with this jig.
Easy to use.
As mentioned by a previous reviewer, there is an error in the manual listing 5/8 as the setting for a 3/4" board. However the instructions also state that the settings are to be set equal to the board thickness. The jig works great. It is easy to set and easy to use. I especially appreciated the side wings that were added as support for wider boards. This eliminates the need to make a fixture for that support, an advantage over the K4. The wings also conveniently serve as storage for the K5 tools. The new design of the clamping mechanism makes for quick changes for board thickness. I used it to make a cornice for our bay window (photo attached).
