This is one of those 1 hour projects made with scrap materials! I decided to make a base to mount my Kreg Pocket Hole Jig that would help support wider boards while i am drilling. Plus i wanted to be able to hang it on the wall out of the way. So here is the result of my “Design on the Fly” project…. To keep all the tools and bits together in one place so i added a small storage compartment. I could have made it alot wider but i wanted to keep it somewhat compact!

The last pic shows it hanging on the wall.

Tell me what you think!

I have a kreg jig and mounted it on a board and hang it on the wall when not in use. Your idea of the storage compartment is very good. My bits and accessories are in a drawer and not as convenient as your idea.

Yes, consider this one on the borrowed list. I really like the simplicity of this.

Nice one Justin! The compartment ups it another notch as everything is right at hand when you pull this down from the wall to use. Great idea…nice execution.

Great idea. I too like the addition of the storage compartment. I currently have mine mounted to a board and the bits are in the smaller storage case. May have to re-engineer.

Great idea Justin. I just purchased my first Kreg K3 this weekend. Excited to use it. I never thought about the idea of creating a wide base for larger boards. Thank you for the tip. Excellent project.

That is actually a very good idea Justin! I bought the master Kreg kit a few weeks ago. I mounted it to a long board for its first use, but took it back off and into its storage case when done. Mainly so that all the other parts to it would be in one place. Your idea for the installed storage solves that. Love it.

THAT Is an epic idea :D I LOVE the idea of keeping the special drill/driver bits with the jig also!

After I get a drill press a kreg jig was next on my list, I have a few projects in mind something like this would be perfect for! You get +10 internets!!
