« Part 11: Added 2 French Cleat boards around garage Part 12 of Garage Remodel series Part 13: Learning the Kreg 5 jig system »

With my french cleat system installed, now comes time to use this Veritas jig for the first time. I have only done 8 board feet of shelf pin holes. Enough not to need to look at the instructions all the time. I like it! When you have cazillions of holes, this jig makes it less of a chore and rather swift when it comes time to move the jig to a new board. I did a booboo though. I had all 1/4” drill bits and shelf pins, but the Veritas only comes with millimeter drill guide bushings. To temporary get around this until all the 1/4” shelf pins are used up, I use the 1mm? drill guide bushing and drill a 1/16” pilot hole and come back with a 1/4” drill bit. I see I can order a dedicated 1/4” drill guide bushing, but for now…will have to run with the temp solution.
I have to make more boards up this coming weekend, then toss up a review.
