    Love this shelf… you can’t beat only spending $5!!!

    No way! That couldn’t have cost under five dollars! This is definitely getting pinned for later!

    I love those crate shelves! I have been thinking about getting Kreg too. Would love for you to come link up with us at Hope to see you there!

    I love how you are doing a wood project with the Kreg on the kitchen counter. So awesome! We recently bought a Kreg and I LOVE it! It was so helpful when I built our chaise lounge chairs from Ana’s website.

    What a great video! I love them! What a nifty tool, I’m gonna have to ask for one for Christmas 🙂 The crate shelf is terrific, anxious to see it finished!

    Oh wow! LOVE the crate shelf! My hubby has a whole 3rd car garage of wood tools and machines… This video makes me want to learn how to use them!!!

    What a great video. I’ve been eyeing the Kreg Jig (sp?) for some time. Looks like I should add this to my list.

    BTW I chuckled to myself. The video gives a whole new meaning to living in a gated community. WOW that is some gate!

      Hahaha… You like our FLOOD gate?? Pretty nice huh? I only wish we they needed to use them right now! And yes… The Kreg is so worth the purchase. Go for it! Thanks!
