Thank you for your reply
Thanks all, for your interest in my design. I've used the workstation with several projects now and am very pleased with it, but unfortunately there are no plans or sketches since I assembled it more or less spontaneously, completely from available scraps.
If its any help at all, I can say that its base is 36" long (91.4 cm) and 11" (27.9 cm) wide. The base, top, and 5" (12.7 cm) wide workpiece stage is particle board covered with a faux wood vinyl veneer that is reasonably tough and provides a slick, reasonably impervious work surface. This material is strong, works well, but adds a lot of weight. The entire unit weighs over 22 lbs (10.1 kg), so you might wish to try plywood. The 2" base flanges, with handles, help portability and can be easily clamped to a bench top if you are working with an especially large workpiece. The yard stick remnants mounted below the stage helps with estimating the even positioning of pocket holes in your work piece, quickly and efficiently.
I really like the drawer better than a hinged top, because you have access to accessories even when a workpiece is engaged in the jig. The drawer box and dividers are common 1x4" pine, with a 1/4" plywood false front. I thought about routing grooves in the drawer box for 1/4" dividers, to save room for more accessories in the drawer, but didn't go to the trouble. Of course, this is an option and might save a little weight. i'll post a couple of more pictures to show close-ups of the drawer, etc.
Hope this helps. Please post pics when you build your versions. I'd like to see your improvements. Best of luck!
how do i down load the plans pls
Kreg has a free Project Plan which you can download to make your own storage unit. I made one in 2014 using the Kreg plan, with a few of my own changes. Works like a charm. John

I have built many kitchens and finally decided to buy the Foreman, because my latest kitchen consisted of 28 cabinets and I was over my hand hurting from all the drilling, moving the clamp etc., it seemed like a smart choice.
