Back in the nineties when I first started building cabinets one of my least favorite jobs was installing shelf standards.
Why? Well, if you’ve nailed in shelf standards you might know how frustrating it can be. First you balance the shelf standard on a block and then tap in a tiny nail and try to keep the standard in straight.
It was a horrible job that even a good set of needle nosed pliers didn’t alleviate.
And that’s why I switched to shelf pins and found the shelf pin jig was a speedier and more accurate way of supporting shelfs.
In this article we’ll look at what jigs are on the market, key features, and how they can help you on your next project.
