Pulled the plug and made one of these. From the current issue of Shopnotes.
A couple of notes:
  • plans are based on the new K5 model. If you have a K3 model like I do, the riser block height and spacing has to be adjusted
  • the drawer width in the plans is a little to narrow for the opening and leaves excess slop. I recut for better fit
  • the drawer height is too shallow to allow for the portable drill guide holder to fit in the drawer. I did not realize this until after the fact so I just clamp it in the K3 during storage.

Other than that, a fun project. Thanks for looking.

I was intrigued when I saw that in Shop Notes, especially the fold up sides.
Looks like you “nailed it”.

It will be nice to have all your pocket jig accessories in one place and its portable.
Well done.

I have seen a lot of pocket hole jigs posted here, but this one really caught my eye. Best design yet. It is now at the top of the projects list.

Nicely executed. And thanks for the mod notes for us K3 owners. I as you found out would not have discovered the needed changes till after the fact.

This is a great and clever design. Hum, almost unbeatable ! It’s nice that you were able to resize it. Thanks.

Best,

I seen it in the new shop notes and thought it a great plan. Thanks for heads up on the k3/k5 difference, will keep that in mind when I get around to making.
