Easy Kreg Jig Projects
First off, if you are not familiar with the Kreg Jig , it is a tool that makes it possible for you to join wood pieces side by side.

This piece is perfect for a basement, bedroom, office, or anywhere you want to have access to food, but you don’t want the place to look like a kitchen. The coolest thing? You can build it using only one piece of plywood! Grab the free plans here!

Last but not least, is of course…another bench. This was my first attempt at upholstery! I shared a video for the upholstery part. The frame is a pretty easy build. Yes, that’s wood, spray painted to mimic metal (shhh, don’t tell) Don’t forget to get the free plans here!
As you can see, pocket hole joinery opens a whole new realm of possibilities in the building world. Whether it’s a simple wood frame or a bench (yes more benches) the kreg jig helps you build it easily, with a strong, durable hold!
Just for clarification, I was NOT paid for this post. That’s how much I believe in this product!
