Just completed a new platform and storage unit for my Kreg pocket hole jig. It is sized to fit into the miter saw station I am currently building, which is documented in my blog found here. It supports the jig and hold all the screws and accessories. I will be adding additional dividers as necessary, when I purchase a wider variety of screws.

Thanks to all you LJ’s for the great ideas and inspiration.

Thanks for reading.

That should be a handy addition to the shop.

This makes me wish I had a bigger shop where I could set up something like this. I recently bought a kreg jig and am having a bit of a love affair with it right now. It’s a bit of a love/hate relationship: the thing works flawlessly and does 100% of everything it should do, but at the same time it’s hard to believe they monopolize the market with what they charge for some plastic castings.

The case was the one real “are you kidding me?” thing that came with the set I bought. Seems like for the cost, the case could have been much better. It didn’t occur to me until seeing this post that 99% of them probably get thrown away in favor of a homemade option.

That is pretty spiffy. Very nice and well thought out. I might just need to build one of those.

this inspires me – the kreg jig is the most used tool in my workshop, i suspect. But to make this, I’d need to make one change – some quick-release function for the jig itself; if I’m joining a 8-foot piece of lumber, my workshop ceiling’s not high enough, so i sometimes move my simple kregjig platform to the floor. This setup you’ve got could work, IF the box itself could be easily removed from the table it appears to be mounted on.

Have your say...
