I guess this project would be proof that not every project needs to take a lot of time and be super complex. Heck it’s pretty much a board with holes in it. But shop time is shop time and I’ll take it. I wanted to make my new Kreg Jig a bit easier to move from job to job so I made a mounting board for it. Scrap MDF is all I had around so I drilled a bunch of holes to make the normally heavy material a bit lighter. I added a handle and rounded over the sharp edges and it was done. I have a few pocket hole projects coming up where this will come in very handy. I also have an article on my site w/ vid if anyone has interest – https://nickferry.com/?p=1006

You did a great job, great idea to drill holes to lighten the support MDF, compliments.

Thank you, it would have been better had I used something a bit lighter but this worked well too
