About: If you like simple solutions then here you can find some of my crazy ideas.

I have a little cheap pocket hole jig, but for this one I need always a clamp to fix it.

So I decided to build a little jig for this jig.

It is designed for my "clamping box" but you can it easily adapt to your workbench.

But I have also an Instructable for my "clamping box"

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Gluing Two Stripes on the Main Board

My pocket hole jig has a little shoulder of 6 mm, therefore I glued two boards of MDF with 6 mm thickness left and right from the jig.

Step 2: Making a Pedestal

I screwed 3 little boards of plywood on the back of the main board to build a little pedestal to support the toggle clamp.

Step 3: Screw the Toggle Clamp on the Pedestal

I put the pocket hole jig and the toggle clamp in there position and then I screwed the toggle clamp on the pedestal,

Step 4: Glue the Jig on the Clamp

I put a big drop of hot glue on the pocket hole jig and then I pressed the clamp down and waited until the glue was cold.

Step 5: Clamp the Whole Jig on the Workbench

Here you can see how the jig is fixed on my workbench.

Step 6: Adjust the Drill

You can easily lift the clamp and adjust the drill if it is necessary.

Step 7: The Result

    Question 5 months ago on Step 7

    Hello! I’m a learning woodie and I love this simple set up!! Two questions - not related to the video content, it was explained perfectly :)
    What is the reason for the piece of wood stuck to the side of your drill? To give you a flat base when drilling sideways??
    Where do you get these work table clamps? I have never seen anything like them and they are awesome!!
    thank you!

    (and love your cat, what’s his name? My cat is exactly the same, except he lies in the middle of the table!! ;)

    Cats will be cats...lol. Also, great ible! I think I'll do something like this for my new Kreg jr that doesnt have a "clamping station". Was gonna build something that mimicked Kreg's design, but this seems more practical. Thanks for the idea!
