"I mounted mine to a piece of 3/4" ply about 10"x16". I added a few "legs" to each side of the board for longer boards. Drill a hole in it and hang it on your wall-o-jigs. Add a small box to keep the bit/s and drillbits in."

"Hi Rex, I have recently moved and do not have a workshop or bench yet. I mounted my Jig to a 3/4" sheet of plywood which in turn sits on 2 sawhorses. Works like a champ. From Sophisticated to primitive. Seems like just about any system works."

"Ditto on mounting to plywood. I used a leftover piece of Oak plywood and added oak trim around the edges. Also add support for pice being drilled. Mounted to my Dovetail Jig table with large knobs uner to remove if needed.    "

Hello Rex, I'm Jay Boutwell, I just replied to your discussion about kreg jig mounting. Looks like we are not that far away from each other. I have several cabinet jobs that I have done over the years in the Hillsboro area. Been building cabinets full time for over 17 years ever since I retired from the sheriff's office here in Salem Oregon.
