This is a great update to an already great jig from Kreg. I have done a lot of research on cabinets like this but they all had flip top lids which can be an issue if you need something out of them while the work piece is in place. With mine you can pull the drawers out without moving your project out of the Kreg Jig and take to a location if the cabinet cannot be used. The jig is attached to a mitered mounting plate that slides in and out that registers against a stop block. The drawers have plexiglass dividers so the screw sizes can be split up along with the drill bits.

Great idea. I built mine with the flip top lids. Love it, but I can’t open the left one with the dust attachment on it either. Not that big of a deal, it would seem, but it still bugs me every time I have to take it off.

wow, that is a great upgrade to the Kreg Jig… I’ll have to add something like that to my project list.
Thanks for sharing this concept!

Great job Drew. I really like your design.
I have really enjoyed mine, with the stability, extra support, and storage of all the parts and screws in a single unit. I have not found the lids to be an issue as far as accessing items, but they do not always lay completely flat and aligned.

Thanks for sharing.
