Has anyone built the toybox from the downloadable Kreg plans? I built the workbench and birdfeeder no problem but I have issues with the toybox.
Firstly, when using the suggested 1x3 for the side frames they do not cover my pocket holes!
I double checked my jig was set to 3/4" as per the instructions and the holes look the same distance from the end as on other projects. What seems to be the issue is alowing for the thickness of the sides. I am a woodworking newbie so I want to check if I messed up some where or if there is a mistake on the plans. For now I will buy some 1x4 and use that to build the frames and cover the holes.
Secondly, the plan calles for 7 1x3x8' lengths of pine board, yet the cut diagram shows a maximum of 60" used on each one, ignoring blade thickness to make the math easy, that leaves 3' of each board left, which seems like a lot of "waste" to me. Heck, I think 5 boards should be enough.
So has anyone come across these same issues or is it a mistake on my part.
