How to use the Massca Twin Pocket-Hole Jig System
Laura from Knapp Time Crafts demonstrates in this video how you can build this universal oversized planter for your home!
Let's get into it -Today we are building an oversized planter. This planter is super awesome because you can use it at any time of the year and it's universal to all styles. Get excited!
Alrighty guys, so I have a 4x8 piece of plywood and I cut it down into three pieces sot hat it's more manageable to work with.
I'm starting here by marking out the first piece which will act as my template.
I am cutting the top at 12.5 inches and then when I angle it down it'll be at 8. inches, this just creates a really nice tapered edge.
Now you will see me replicating that multiple times.
Then I am getting started on cutting out the basic structure on my inside but before I do that I need to work on getting those pocket holes ready.
Once you have found the wood thickness, you will then adjust the pocket hole jig itself to the depth that you need.
Make sure that you adjust the collar on the actual drill bit to the correct depth as well.
This can be done with the awesome tool provided so make sure you do that before you get started.
I continued on it's important to also support them in all the angles that you possibly can.
This gives it additional support so that it is structurally sound.
I made pocket holes on either end of that board.
Now I am going to drill these in with screws.
I also added a dab of glue on the other side just to help support it long term.
Then you'll just screw in the appropriate screw for these pocket holes.
I chose to use an impact driver just because it gives me a little bit more leverage when screwing them in.
Now you'll see me adding the bottom piece.
Keep in mind I cut these bottom pieces to size, making sure that they fit perfectly rather than cutting them in advance which is what I recommend.
Then continue on and drilled in the other side.
It's looking pretty good it's starting to give it some more structure.
In a second you'll see me glue up the sides, I then just decided to nail gun these into the supports for extra support.
I then decided to make it perfect to add some trim.
This is just some left over baseboard that I had but it's pre-primed so it's really nice that I don't have to prime it.
I went through with the nail gun and created that shape.
Then I went crazy with a wood filler.
Ivwant this to be super smoothand really chic so in order to do that you have to wood fill and sand it.
Now we're on to the painting and the priming, to make it perfectly.
This to make it perfect solid took about three coats.
Here is the final piece!
