Well, I finally got some free time and decided to make this handy kreg jig storage. I have been wanting to make something like this for quite some time. My ideas and plans for the kreg storage came from combining other lumberjockers projects into what worked best for my needs. So, thanks everyone for your posts! This was a great project at a low cost. Only things I had to purchase were the locks and hinge, $8 total. Wood was made out of all scraps. Got to lot that!! It will be really nice to have all the parts and accessories for the kreg jig all in one spot.

That is one nice design – I am sure to put that on my TO-DO list (the long TO-DO list).

Nice job on this. Great design.

I tend to over do everthing. For example, I would have used edge banding on the plywood. Just because it would look , well, “finished”.

Also, as much as people love using the Kreg system, I just can’t get used to opening something, and seeing those very unprofessional looking pockets. I suppose if they were plugged, I wouldn’t mind them so much, but most projects I see here have the holes exposed.

Just my opinion.

Ha! I am glad you used the pocket screws to join this :) Nice locker for all those parts that Kreg seems to require.

Mind if I ask what model that jig is?

I’ve been trying to find the version that has the clamping handle on the “operator side” of the workpiece. Kreg even shows a picture of it on their website under the “jigs” catagory, but it isn’t shown as an available item in the listings. Do they not make this model any more?

Great looking storage solution! Thanks for posting.

The model is a K3. Not sure if it’s still availiable though.

Edtheengineer, not sure of the exact model name because I saw it marketed as a K3 and a K4 but I know that it is no longer available from Kreg. I talked to a Kreg rep at a woodworking show earlier this year and he said they don’t make them any more because they cost too much to make and they couldn’t sell them for even $10 more than the back mounted lever type. I have the front mounted lever type and have used the back type and the one with the lever in front is far easier to use.
