Well, Santa brought me a new Kreg Jig Master System. I’ve been wanting to get my hands on one of these for quite some time. The first thing I wanted to do was build a base for this thing. I checked LJ and also the Kreg web site. I found an example on the Kreg site that that most suited my needs. (Gotta join the site) I made some mods to the design involving the material stops. The stop that comes with the Master system is a bit cheesy if you ask me. Plus you only get one. So I added the runners on either side of the jig that both provide a flush platform for wide stock and has a T-slot with a stop block on each side of the jig. Took me all of an hour, from standing start to finish, to put this together with pocket holes. Nice. I put 0.75” hole on each side that fits over bench dogs so I can clamp this thing down using my bench tail vise. Can’t wait to find some other good pocket hole projects. I’ll be checking LJ.
