Pocket Hole Station

I recently bought a Kreg pocket hole jig thinking it would be useful for some future projects for which sheet goods would be involved (ie. bookcase or shelving). After receiving the jig I decided to make a workstation and found that “ShopNotes” No. 1237 had published plans for such a workstation. Using hardwood cutoffs and some Baltic birth I made this compact workstation. It is heavy but supplies a stable platform for drilling pocket holes. I am quite happy with the way it turned out.

Very creative. I like how it folds up and can be carried.

Shopnotes issue 137, Sept-Oct 2014 is the issue that has the plans. Be careful as the K5 and the K3 have slightly different dimensions and the plans will have to be adjusted depending on which model you have.

After recently doing about 50 pocket holes this setup would have been nice to have.
