Man looking at timber chair legs
Dreamed of making your own tables, bookshelves, outdoor furniture and more? Now you can, thanks to Kreg!

 

Made for keeps

An elegant dining table, marked with decades of meals and memories. A bookcase passed down from one generation of readers to the next.  These are more than just functional items of furniture. They’re heirloom pieces, made with love and built to last. With a little help from Kreg, even a novice can master these joinery projects, creating new furniture that can become a family's legacy.

Rock solid

The difference between a rickety construction and a solid piece that will go the distance is in the joins. A butt joint is the first join every beginner D.I.Y.er will master (because it’s easy and does the job), but a pocket-hole is next level. It comes at timber on an angle so it doesn’t split, giving you a discreet and professional finish that’s made to last. Kreg makes it easy, and once it’s in your tool kit, you’ll have no trouble repairing, upgrading or creating.

What is a pocket-hole?

A pocket-hole is a hole drilled at an angle that forms a pocket for a screw, allowing pieces to connect seamlessly and creating a superior strength join. Shaping them alone can be tricky, but the Kreg pocket-hole system makes it easier to create professional quality joins. First, clamp the pocket-hole jig onto the piece of wood. Once in place, the jig allows you to drill a hole at exactly the right angle to firmly join the two pieces. Next, drive in one of Kreg’s uniquely engineered pocket screws, which have a self-tapping tip (no need for pilot holes) and a head that’s flat on the underside, so they sit snugly on the ‘shelf’ created by the drill bit.

A D.I.Y.er’s dream

A Kreg pocket-hole system will become an essential toll in any workshop, whether you're a seasoned pro or a beginner craftsman. Use pocket joins to connect boards into one large panel for a tabletop, join mitred edges to create a professional-grade frame, or create solid boxes to form the base of kitchen cabinets, bookcases, entertainment units and more. Your imagination is your only limit.

Health & Safety

Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.

When following our advice in our D.I.Y. videos, make sure you use all equipment, including PPE, safely by following the manufacturer’s instructions. Check that the equipment is suitable for the task and that PPE fits properly. If you are unsure, hire an expert to do the job or talk to a Bunnings Team Member.
