Who doesn't like to make their tools better? Here is a quick way to make Kreg Pocket Hole Station with drawers and stop blocks. If you want to download the plans, they're available on my website.

Step 1: Break Down the Sheet Goods
The nice thing about this project is you only need 1/2 of sheet of 1/2in plywood. So I used scrap I had laying around.
Step 2: Making the Base
The base is more or less the most tricky part, I used a straight-line jig to cut the other shape. Super easy to make one of these jigs and they come in handy!
Step 3: I Need Handles!
Mark out the handles with a tape measure, drill the two holes and finish the cut with a jigsaw.
Step 4: Add Some Flair
Although optional, adding a round over always makes your project look nice!
Step 5: Super Glue and Brads
Time to assemble, I used super glue and brads to do this. It's always shocking to me how strong super glue is!
Step 6: Adding the T-track
I admit, I did this backwards, it would have been much safer to do this before you assemble but This way surprisingly worked out well.
Once I had the dado cut, I trimmed the T-track to size and added super glue to hold it in place.
Step 7: Add the Kreg Jig
If all went well, you will be able to add the Kreg Jig K4 to the runners and everything fits perfect and flat.
Who am I kidding, I still had to make modifications, a chisel comes in handy to make those small changes :D
Also optional but I added drawers to either side. Perfect for screws and accessories. These are on the side on purpose because you can hang this jig on the wall!
Step 8: Enjoy!
The stop blocks work great for repeat pocket holes. I like to use both on one side so I can have one inner and one outer placement. Then of course you just flip them out of the way when you don't need them.
Hang it up for safe keeping.
Of course the full plans are available if you're into that kinda thing.
