Kreg Jig Portable Workstation

The Kreg Jig is mounted to a small board which nests in the workstation. This workstation gives support to your wood as you work. It contains five storage compartments behind three sliding doors. These compartment store screws, bits, drills, clamps, and the jig itself. It can also house the Kreg Jig Master kit case nicely. The brace for the dust collection adapter is dovetailed in so it to can be removed and stored within. T-rails can be added to help with other accesories such as stops. Currently, I am still working on a handle or strap so that it can be easily carried.

Phillip;

Great jig. You obviously have figured out how handy pocket joinery is.

Thanks for sharing and welcome to Lumber Jocks.

P.S. your truck bed is way cool!

Thanks eveyone. Exelectrician- I hope so. I’m really interested in seeing others take on this. I’m sure it’s needing some revisions.
JGM0658- I hope the SU file Is a big help. Gotta love Skethup.

Hi I tried to download the plans for your kreg work station, I guess I don’t have the right program to download it , are you able to email them to me? This is a great idea.
Please and Thank You

Tattoo- you need Google Sketchup. Check it out it’s a very useful tool and it’s free.

Bob- you bet I did!

Pip, seeing as you build such a nice kreg station I wonder can you tell me when you are screwing 2 pieces at a right angle what is the secret to keeping them flush and stopping the screw from pushing the board out at the very last second? Anyone jump in if you have any ideas, I know about the right angle clamps but they only work on the ends if I want join two sections 5’ long they don’t really help. Thanks Pat

Pat;

I clamp a very straight piece of MDF on back side of the joint to keep it from moving …. Foolproof.

Good luck.
