Don’t regret buying the Kreg screws as you’ll use them sooner than you think. I looked at the plan online and suggest that, when you get the confirmat kit, drill in straight to join the pieces because MDF would be weakened at an angle causing it to be more likely to fail with a load on it. Since you plan on painting anyway the screw holes could be filled with a little filler and sanded before paint and only you would know. Since it is for your workshop you would want the extra strength to avoid damaging your tools from an MDF failure. With the confirmat and good glue it will be a very sturdy project after completion. As for a special tool the kit comes with the drill bit and just good ol’ eyesight should suffice on the drilling.
