Just starting - need help!

I want to make the $10 dollar ledges but don't have a Kreg jig. Can these be made without one and if so how do you hang it in the wall without exposing nail holes?
Thank you for any help!

Even though she uses the Kreg jig in the video, in the description it just says to screw the two main pieces together from the back, and attach the front piece with finish nails.

A little glue would add strength. In fact, with proper clamping the front ledge with glue it would probably be ok without the nails.

In either method you still have the issue with exposed screws that attach it to the wall, but perhaps careful placement of the stuff on the shelf can hide them.
