Kreg Jig Work Platform

Since the Kreg jig system uses its own screws, drill bits, drivers, plugs etc.. a dedicated work platform with storage is a good idea.

Here is how I choose to build mine:
The Jig is stationery in the center of the station and for the platform I used a piece of hardwood deck which is very straight with a smooth surface.
Both sides can be lifted to access the compartments which are divided in small/big boxes according to what you want to store in them.
The platforms are secured with hooks to keep them flash and level with the jig, and finally the station base is longer than the platform to allow the use of clamps if needed.

I’ve been meaning to make one of these for a few weeks, but keep forgetting to get the wood and I haven’t had a need to pull the jig out of its storage box. I promise I will next time I need to use my kreg system.

Great work man! I built one similar last year. (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/62069). I like all the compartments you have. Especially the one that hold your drills and drivers. I may have to incorporate that into mine. Thanks for sharing.

Another top 3 for someone reinventing the Kreg jig? There is no love for the Porter Cable Quick Jig, or its on board storage, and forethought that allows you to use a scrap 2×4 for support . http://lumberjocks.com/projects/83801

You’re kidding… Kreg uses its own screws, drill bits, drivers, plugs etc.. ??? I did not know that. Great idea and nicely put together. One more item to add to the favorites
