This is a pontoon boat I'm helping build for a friend of mine. He wanted his pontoon to have an old-time ship feel, so he wanted to build it using wood. I then introduced him to the Kreg Jig, telling him that Kreg joining will be stronger and we can easily hide any screws. He was a little hesitant at first, but after I presented him with the cradle I made for their coming child, he was sold.
The construction is 2 x 2 pine with plywood planking. We set the Kreg Jig to allow for the 1.5 inch thickness and were on our way. The construction took us only two weekends at about six hours each day. Odin planned for MUCH longer construction time and was simply amazed at how fast we were able to go. I just kept telling him, "the Kreg Jig makes it possible."
Our next step is to plug any exposed pocket holes, build the wheel tower, and sand, stain, and finish the pontoon. He should be ready to launch the USS Kreg Jig by May, easily. (OK, he's not calling it that, but I am in my mind.)
I'm wondering if this might be the world's first watercraft that used the Kreg Jig...
My first project has been a shop sink. Very simplistic using 2x4 and 1x4 lumber. All joints were made with my Kreg including attaching the formica top.
