I know a few people who build their own bread boxes with the Kreg Jig. What they do is just like a lot of other do-it-yourself woodworking projects. They use a Kreg Jig to add a little extra depth to a plan or prepare a piece of lumber for the cutting, tapping, or shaping that will make it a good fit for their project.
When planning to build one, you need to know what tools and materials you need, as well as where to get them. One of the most important pieces of this puzzle is the Kreg Jig. You can either buy it pre-assembled at your local hardware store, or you can build it on your own using plans to guide you through the process.
Build a Beautiful DIY Bread Box With The Kreg Jig
You need to do some research before you go about building your box. Make sure you have all the necessary supplies, as well as all the plan drawings. The plan drawings are what you need for your home improvement project. Most kits come with the right measurements already included in the plans, but you still need to find out how to actually cut and shape the wood.
Buying the kit from the store, you need to go through the instructions and read through all the packing material. The plans you get will show you exactly what equipment and tools you will need. While it is nice to build one yourself, it is definitely a lot cheaper to buy everything pre-assembled.
Once you have all the tools and equipment ready to go, you can start building your own Kreg Jig. Make sure you measure your board in the proper way. The plans should have you inputting the exact measurements so you don’t accidentally cut it wrong.
Now the fun part comes with actually building your Kreg Jig. As with most plans, you get a manual to help you through the process of cutting, tapping, and shaping the wood. As well, you should be sure to follow the instructions completely.
Once you are finished building your board, you need to check it carefully to make sure it’s square. If not, you may need to file away any extra plan lines on your work table. Always make sure you are square when you are finished.
