Tuesday Tool Tip: Secure Deck Railing with the Kreg Jig® HD | Spring is just around the corner, which means outdoor projects are too. The Kreg Jig® HD is great for outdoor projects, deck railing being one of them. There are three main ways you can drill pocket holes using your Kreg Jig® HD to successfully secure deck railing. This diagram displays the three different methods.
Whether you’re building a new deck or refinishing an old one, you want to do the job right. With the Kreg Deck Jig, and a few simple tools you already own, you can create a beautiful and functional deck surface that is completely free of exposed fasteners and painful splinters.
Set your Kreg Jig® depth collar based on the thickness of your wood. For example, set it to 3/4" if you are working with 3/4"-thick wood. Once you have it at the correct setting, tighten the depth collar with the included Allen wrench and you are good to go!
