Kreg Jig Storage / Workstation solution. I have received so many good ideas and enjoyed Lumberjocks I though I need to help in the contribution with some post.

Still have to go buy a handle then it should be done. Made it with all scraps I had on hand. The oak that is stained are stair tread scraps my step dad had from a job. I saved them from the burn pile 8 months ago. They are a perfect 1” height as the Kreg Jig. I made it deep for more storage, but it is a little too tall when on my bench. May be perfect if I put it on my saw horses. I have a few more ideas for it. The pencil, drill bit, allen wrench holder will come in handy. The size was all dictated from the jig size and scraps.

That is a great idea Kreg makes a nice jig but the box it comes in is a POS no way to put all of the pieces away in a organized manner.

I found a handle I salvaged so my total cost is $0. Just a little time.

Way cool! As far as I’m concerned the only thing for the burn pile is splinters, which is why my shop looks like something exploded in there. The wife was in there this afternoon biting her tongue…. hehe

P.S. I read on LJs of a tip to paint the measurment marks and gently wipe off the paint to make it easier to read. I have 20/20 and its a pain for me to read and it reminds me to change the collar depth. Yea I for got once…. Or twice.

Have your say...
