kreg jig advice

Brand new to woodworking. About to dive-in with this American Girl Loft Bed project. From others' comments, it seems a Kreg Jig Jr. will be just fine. Yet another commenter suggested purchasing the Mini as well. Is this strongly suggested or can I get away with the $40 Jr. set? Thanks!

Hey Molly, I used the Jr.

Hey Molly,
I used the Jr. You definitely don't need to buy the more expensive one. I even just built a long console table using the Jr. Good luck and don't forget to post pictures of the finished product.

You are an inspiration, Maureen

Thank you, Maureen! Reassuring to know!

Just got back from purchasing the Kreg Jig Jr, clamp, and wood. I felt totally out-of element.

I have had this loft bed pinned on Pinterest for quite some time now. Seeing your brag post AND knowing that it was your first project helped me to think I might be able to accomplish this.

Funny that you just built a console table. That is one of the top projects on my list if this all goes well.
