I need to make some 14 x 14 x 8 inch cubes (no front
or back). Material is 3/4 inch melamine coated MDF.
I was going to use simple lap joints with biscuits to
hold. Experimenting with some smaller pieces shows
biscuit placement can easily be a little off in either
direction and the sides aren't square or flush at the
front and back.
I'm wondering if a Kreg jig would make it easier to
join these as it is a sort-of clamp that should make it
easier to align the pieces before drilling?
Any opinions? These cubes don't need to bear a
lot of weight so I'm guessing a few pocket screws
at each joint will do. (I don't have a Kreg but, hey,
if you can't buy a new tool for a project what use is
there doing it?) Will the Kreg jig really help hold
these pieces (with some extra support, I'm sure) so
I can get them square and aligned?
