Kreg Jig Station

Because I ended up with two Kreg K3’s, I wanted to make a simple, but useful, station for them. This allows me to work more easily with wider material. It also allows me to more quickly work with thinner material, as one jig is set up with the micro drill guide.

Drill bit storage is right up front and very easily accessed. Driver bits are stored right on the top of the base. There is a stop for each jig (though I don’t use them often).

The station quickly clamps in place on my assembly table and I have room under my main bench for storage when this is not in use.

That’s really cool. Great idea. The K3 is one of the best and most used tools I have. I guess having two would be twice as good! And I think I may have said this before, but the assembly/clamping table you have it on is quite impressive too. Real nice.

I really love to see everybody’s take on these kreg jig stations. It kind of makes me wish I had waited on mine so I could use all these great ideas. Thanks for sharing and good job!
