I've made a few of these as well, and use Western Red Cedar - and don't stain at all, will let them weather.

Found the receipt, it was select douglas fir, and of course 1 x 6 not 2 x 6 as written above.

Thanks for the comments guys, I actually forget what wood I used. It was the only 2 x 6 that the local Lowes had. I'll check for you the next time I am there, but it wasn't anything fancy.

Be careful, the Kreg jig can give you more projects than expected! The wife like the first bird feeder I made her and decided the nieghbors needed some too! Here's the finished production line.

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

Product Reviews

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.
