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

Finding more space to store and display all the “stuff” used for day-to-day living, as well as life’s pleasures, can be an adventure that ends with everything in its perfect place. Woodcraft can help you with a few ideas to kick-start your space hunt and then suggestions for tools and supplies to make your storage projects successful.
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).
