Kreg Owners' Community

Hi Everyone,

I'm starting my first project and am seeking some basic advice. 

I'd like to build a closet system similar to this:

(The dimensions are almost exactly the same as my space)

My questions are:

What type of material should I use for everything? Are the drawer fronts typically the same material? 

I went to Home Depot today and looked at their birch plywood and everything they have is in rough shape. Delaminated/chipped surfaces, dents in the sides, some of the interior plywood looks hollowed out, etc... 

Is this what people use or touch up, or is there some place I should be getting better materials from? (lumber yard, etc).

Is painting (and sanding) typically done after everything is installed in a project like this?

I imagine it is (excluding maybe some shelves and drawer fronts?)

Thank you!

Kreg Jig Dust Collection Attachment

1st impression when you hold this attachment in your hand:  "not much to it", Kreg sure is makin' $$ here.

Then I installed it.. perfect fit, leaves just enough room to adjust the setting screw on my K4.

Then the real test, hook…

My K4 Master System

I picked up the K4MS from Home Depot about 3 months ago, I was looking for a small filing cabinet for under my desk and nothing I looked at would fit or they wanted big money for it, my wife said “why don’t you just build your own then you will…
