Kreg Jig Owners Community

I'm new to owning a Kreg Jig Master System. In fact, I'm still waiting for it to be delivered to me on Monday, 4/6. In the past, I've built kitchen cabinets, wall cabinets and other things by using a finishing nail gun and glue to hold stuff together.

So, my question is what to do with the various pieces of oak plywood I have left over that's in various lengths and widths? I'm not very imaginative, I will admit that. I have pieces up to 4' long and 6" wide. I have some pieces that may be 17" x 20" and just a variety of everything.

I'm looking for ideas on furniture, cabinets, or just small items that I may be able to make and sell at a craft fair.

Any ideas?

I might add that I do have some 2" x 2" boards, 2" x 4"'s in various lengths, some 3 1/2" bead boards that are 3/4"" thick, and some various length and width pine boards.

What can I do?
small wall shelfs 4" wide by14" 16"& 18" very plain very fast & easy to make set of 3 sells well at arts & craft for low price
Spice racks, cribbage boards, picture frames, DVD racks, give the wood to me, etc.... =)
How about a small work table with some of the bigger pieces, to put together pieces of face frames that you'll most likely be making with that master system.I know one of the best things I did was making an "L" frame screwed to a board underneath, where I could butt the face frame pieces together and clamp them while putting the screws into the pocket holes. That will make making those projects to sell, go together even easier.
Try using the small wood pieces to make spice racks that will fit between the studs in the walls. My wife loves hers.

I want to make clocks, they make great gifts.
Well, I still have a ton of odd sized pieces of leftover red oak plywood but I haven't had a chance to work on any small projects lately. Since I posted this message, I decided to take on bigger projects. I completely gutted my master walk in closet and completely rebuilt it from the studs to the ceiling. I custom made cabinets and stained them dark walnut. I finished the walls and the ceiling with 3" tongue in groove bead boards and tiled the floor with Italian porcelain tile.

I then decided to gut my master bath down to the concrete cinder block, put backer board on all the walls, and tiled the floors and walls with Italian porcelain tile too. I also had my plumbing redone to include new drains and a new toilet flange. It's almost done. I'm down to grouting the last half of the bathroom and then building a custom vanity and cabinets.

Once that's done, then it's on to the master bedroom for a complete remodel from the ceiling and insulation all the way down. I'll be putting up 3/4" tongue in groove bamboo flooring on the walls for a very unique look.

Then I might have time to make small projects in between obtaining my Master's Degree and work...
love to see some pics of th cabinets in the bathroom.
Ralph, I was given some 3/4" oak vineared plywood and some old table leafs that I am currently making a storage cabinet for our cabins storage closet. I'm not finished yet but it's turning out pretty good. The only $$ I have into it so far is a box of Kreg 1-1/4" fine screws and my time. Here are some pictures I took today.

Hmm can't think of anything then send them to me..... ;) No seriously I'd keep a hold of then there are always a need for small sized peices from time to time. I am constantly finding myself digging threw the pile. In fact my wife has often said that I was problebly born in a pile...lol

Jerry you nailed the face frame to the box, that is what the pocket jig is for. I can see your nailhead fills.
