I guess the title probably sparked your interest and yes, there is a small story behind the price. Several years ago we had a new floor installed in our kitchen. Some kind of man made product that resembles ceramic tile. Well . . . the peolpe that sold us the floor did NOT tell us that you should avoid spilling water on the floor and we had to find out the hard way. While my wife and I were at work, one of our cats spilled their water bowl right where four corners of the tile come together and a couple days later the tile swelled and looked terrible. We received a bid to repair the floor which was rediculous. So we received a quote to replace the floor and it came to around $3,000. My wife - who usually thinks outside the box - came up with the idea of building a small cabinet on that wall to cover the floor and add to the decor of the kitchen/dining room area. So . . . with that in mind I designed a small cabinet that is 9" deep x 30" wide x 36" tall. I used my Kreg Jig for all of the joints. The only glue that was used for the entire project was for the plugs to cover the screw holes. My wife also decided that she wanted to install pierced tin panels in the doors. Since we couldn't find pierced tin panels to fit the doors my wife decided to try her hand and do the piercing on her own. She did a great job and the cabinet looks great. With less than $100 in materials and about 10 hours labor we now have our $3,000 Kreg Cabinet. If I am successful - I will attach a photo.

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