DIY Cabinet & Cupboard Doors

For many beginner DIY enthusiasts, installing concealed or Euro hinges on cabinet and cupboard doors can be a challenge. The drilled hole for the concealed or Euro hinge must be drilled at a precise distance from the door edge, and at a consistent distance from the top or bottom of the door. These holes also need to be drilled straight and to the correct depth using a 35mm Forstner bit.

Using the Kreg Concealed Hinge Jig simplifies the process and allows you to install concealed hinges easily and accurately using an ordinary drill.

Install Knobs & Handles

When you are updating or making kitchen cabinets, or assembling your own project with drawers or doors, installing knobs and handles is the final step. Hardware needs to be positioned precisely for it to look good. If one piece is crooked or out of position, it sticks out like a sore thumb. The best way to avoid that is to use the Kreg Cabinet Hardware Jig. Simply set it up and drill all your holes using the jig for accurate and repetitive results.

Fit Adjustable Shelving

Being able to install adjustable shelves add a lot of versatility to any storage project, whether you're making a bookcase or cabinet. You really only need to drill a series of holes for the shelf pins but have to ensure that shelves sit flat and don't wobble. This means that your holes need to be spaced consistently and straight.

For many beginner DIY enthusiasts this can be tough to do without any type of guide. The Kreg Shelf Pin Jig has guides that allow you to drill holes at exact, consistent spacing every time. Plus, the drill guides ensure that all the holes will be straight, and a stop collar on the bit produces the perfect hole depth.

Fit Drawer Runners

Fitting drawers can be difficult, and when you’re assembling projects with drawers, installing the slides can be one of the most challenging tasks. Not only do you need to attach one side of the slide inside the cabinet or case, you also need to fit the other side to the drawer - with both parts level, positioned properly, and aligned with one another. You can make the process easy with an installation jig like the Kreg Drawer Slide Jig.
