When I need to use my jig all I have to do is slide out the key and insert my jig….Wa-La! And I have a strong and stable surface to work on. I have plans to also incorporate a recessed measuring tape on both sides to aid in hole placement.

That is awesomely far out and out of sight! I truly like the ingenious way designed your workbench! I'm going to follow your lead. Thanks for the idea… I've never seen that type of Jig, I wonder if Kreg still makes that model… Later and blessings…

Excellent ....... I'll be doing the same in my shed very soon. Thanks for the idea.

Yes I notched the sled to lower the jig to table height. If you look at picture 4 you will see a 60" piece of 3/4 plywood that is held firmly while I drill.

Fantastic idea ....Is the surface of the table the same height as the surface of the jig?

You whipped that one together pretty fast! lol Got ahead of myself and I missed that.

Hey Ryan, have a look at picture 2 and you will see the insert.
Comment by Ryan Bruzan on September 18, 2010 at 8:44pm
That's a great idea JD. I would even go as far as to make a matching table insert in case the jig needs to be removed for more table space. Matter of fact, I think I am going to inset my jig into my existing table and do just that.

Kreg Foreman

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.
