Kreg pocket hole jig. I've found it to be indispensable for building furniture and cabinetry. I got the Kreg mini for like 30 bucks and it's served me well for years.

Thanks so much for the lists. Trying to get our supplies together. Of course to get our seats and the floors started. I believe we have screws not rivets which helps if we decide to do the roof.

Go to the UserCP in the upper left and fill out your profile so we know where you're from and what bus you're working on. Helps with locale oriented questions.
