This is my version of the popular kreg jig the K5, I tried putting all the same features into it. It has an adjustable clamp for different material thickness, as well as an adjustable guide block and dust collection port.

That is awesome! A fraction of the cost of a plastic one too. I must ask though, how did you drill the pocket hole guide holes? =)

Awesome work. I hope you made the drill angle 10-12 degree as apposed to kregs 15 which I’ve never been happy about.

a great build, functional and REAL bulky. In my shop, space is way more valuable than a larger than necessary tool.

WOW ! Excellent Work and the quality of video tutorial is crisp and clear. Thanks for sharing. 3/4” plywood from most of our shops is from the scrap bin, and only thing bought out is two pocket hole bushings, Step drill bit with collar, dust port connector & the T bolt and knob. Great savings and a very satisfying weekend project.

I don’t know about this…...In the time it took you to make this jig, I completed my end table project using my store bought jig. To each his own…...However, I bet you have extra money left over.
