BTW, I doubled up on the four corners. I ripped two 1-1/2" pieces of poplar and glued them together. That would have made them 1-1/2" square corners. Here is a Front Side Piece Glue-Uppic of the glue-up of the corners.

Hi Chris,

So sorry that I haven't been able to get back to you and answer your question. I was too busy painting the exterior of my home. It took me two months! I'm now working on one of my bathrooms.

At any rate, I used 3/4" poplar for everything except for the three walls of the drawers. I used 3/4" pine for that. For the drawer bottoms, I used some kind of smooth plywood, but it wasn't plywood. It sold in 4x8 sheets, and it was 1/8" to 3/16s" thick. I would never use 1/4" regular plywood for the drawer bottoms. Too thick for me. I also used wooden drawer slides from Lee Valley Tools at $5.80 per.  

I hope that helps! If you have any more questions, just contact me.

Kreg Jig Dust Collection Attachment

1st impression when you hold this attachment in your hand:  "not much to it", Kreg sure is makin' $$ here.

Then I installed it.. perfect fit, leaves just enough room to adjust the setting screw on my K4.

Then the real test, hook…

My K4 Master System

I picked up the K4MS from Home Depot about 3 months ago, I was looking for a small filing cabinet for under my desk and nothing I looked at would fit or they wanted big money for it, my wife said “why don’t you just build your own then you will…
