I really like the K4 that has the clamp that you put your wood into to drill. I got the whole master system, but really don't use the loose jigs (like the R3) The clamp of the K4 holds everything pretty square (of course you have to make sure you cut it square & place it in the clamp squarely ) I have a couple of face clamps that I use on the framing. You really need to clamp everything down squarely to get a nice joint. I have one of the right angle clamps, but only used it a couple times.

K4 looks like the ticket..

I went to look at YouTube vids on the K4 and that sold me on the system. My son has the biscuit joiner, etc, and that is nice, but the Kreg looks like a simpler system.

And I see the corner joint is the one that would be most useful.

Sheet metal screws pull up nice and tight, the aluminum snugs up and the extra angle allows for some tension. I also used the round cove plastic bead from VTS in the joint.

So far, so good!

Ceiling/Frame Bevel Angle

Becky...the angle is about 15 deg. I would set that angle on your table saw, if you have one, or use a bevel gauge and hand plane. As you can see from my finished cabinets, they don't hang straight down but have a slight tilt toward the wall. If you want your cabinets to hang straight down, I would try a 10 deg angle or less. Good luck!

Thanks, Bob & Vernon too. I'll give it a shot after Christmas. I'm trying to hold down the dust until after the parties at my house are over. At least I know in my mind how to go about this now. I can stop staring at it!!! I will have a hard time staying out of the shop until then! Have a Merry Christmas!

Dang! You are all just ever-so-annoyingly talented! I definitely should have paid more attention in high school wood shop!
