Check out Ana White's book The Handbuilt Home: 34 Simple Stylish and Budget-Friendly Woodworking Projects for Every Room
published in the fall of 2012. Ana White is well known for her Kreg plans for the woodworking beginner. Even if you only use one plan out of the 34 included in the book, the purchase price will be well worth it!
The “Kreg Bookshelf Project Plan” is made from furniture grade plywood, and matching hardwood for trim. With its small footprint, there will be many places in your home where this bookshelf would fit perfectly.

Each of these Kreg plans are built using the Kreg jig. When we started, we purchased the Kreg K4MS Jig Master System
which costs about $140.
Since then Kreg has put together the Kreg Tool Company KTC5750 Toolboxx Master Collection. This is more expensive to start, at about $300, but within a year we had purchased everything that is in the Toolboxx Collection. So we have all the tools, but not the fancy toolbox. AND we wish we had that!
If you have space for a workbench, the “Kreg Workbench Project Plan” is a great beginner wood working project.
This pocket hole workbench plan includes a shelf to store your woodworking tools.
The “Kreg Toy Box Project Plan” would be a very practical option for getting started with your Kreg pocket jig.
