Clamping Boards when using a Kreg Jig YouTube Video

Hey friends!  Happy Wednesday!  WHEW… What a week!  Last Thursday my family welcomed our new baby Jed into the world, and I am completely in LOVE.

I appreciate all your support and kind words over the last 9 months.  I can’t wait to get building again, but in the meantime I will spend my days healing and cuddling this new nugget. 🙂

Today we are back with a new YouTube video!  We get asked ALL about clamping boards ALL the time, and we have definitely found some favorite methods and tips over the last few years.  I will link to all of the products we talk about below, but before that, be sure to check out our YouTube video HERE!

So, here they are!

Hope these are helpful guys!  Let us know if you have any questions at all!

    Thanks for sharing all the great info, plans, fun and sweetness.

    There are 3 things that frustrate me about Kreg clamps and pocket holes. First, when I am screwing in my pocket holes no matter how many clamps I have , it always seems to pull the board with the pocket holes forward causing the pieces to be offset. Secondly, whin I use the Kreg angle clamp it always seems to tear out the top of my pocket holes. Lastly, no matter what I do or how hard I try, my pocket holes always leave jagged edges and fibers like this:

    Any thoughts or suggestions on correcting these issues or at least improving them would be awesome! Otherwise I love my Kreg jig.

      Oh my gosh, I’m having the same problems! I thought it was just me. I would love some tips too. A lot of the time I end up using my husband to hold things down or together so I can drill. It’s a pain. I agree, the Kreg Jig is pretty awesome though.
