Kreg Owners' Community

Hi, I'm still pretty new to woodworking (other than wall framing and shop class in high school), but I have been able to make a few projects with the Kreg jig.


I'm hoping to make a replica military foot locker with some cedar to line the bottom and do some custom woodburning on the lid as a gift for someone heading off to boot camp in April.


The problem is that I can't find plans for anything even close to one of those online or in catalogs. From what I remember of them (I'm a USMC Gulf War 1 veteran), there really wasn't much to them. They were just simple plywood boxes with 3 hinges, metal corner caps and 2 rails inside to hold small totes/shelves. The ones we had did have metal handles on the sides, but I've seen a WWII-era diagram that had a wood block on either end as handles.


I'm at a loss and time is running out. I figure with all the master woodworkers out there in the Kreg Community, someone is bound to know of something.


Thanks in advance for the help and Semper Fi.

Yeah, I did the Google thing. I was looking for more of a "diagram and parts/cut list" than guesstimating off a picture and rolling the dice. If it was for me to store junk in my basement, I wouldn't mind trial and error, but since it's a gift, I'd rather not do that. Thanks, Rob

Here a link I found in a search.. 1943 drawing
