Setting up your Kreg Jig is super easy!

Step 1

Set your board thickness and remember, a 1” piece of stock wood is typically ¾”, so make sure you actually measure your wood instead of taking the nominal size for granted.

Step 2

Using the gauge, set the collar to the depth of your wood.

Step 3

Clamp down your wood in the jig and drill.

And now you have a pocket hole!

Drill responsibly,
