DIY Tool Organizer Plans for Kreg Tool Stand

Need to get your tools more organized? We built this DIY tool organizer for our Kreg tool stand to store our Kreg tools and accessories.

Thank you to Kreg for sponsoring this DIY tool organizer! All opinions are entirely my own. This post also contains affiliate links, but nothing that I wouldn’t recommend wholeheartedly. Read my full disclosure here.

It’s no secret that we love our Kreg tools and accessories. But things have gotten a little messy in our workshop. We needed a place to organize and store our Kreg tools and what better place than on the bottom of our Kreg tool stand?

So we got creative and created a customized tool organize that fits all of our tools perfectly! Today we’re sharing the free woodworking plans to build your own tool organizer!

Kreg Tool Stand: Before Building Tool Organizer

Our Kreg tool stand (router table stand) needed some organization to store all of our Kreg jigs and accessories.

We love our Kreg tool stand (also known as the router table stand) that we have our clamp table mounted to. As the name suggests, you can also use the tool stand to mount a router.

But we already have another spot for our router in our workshop, so we use the tool stand for our clamp table. The clamp table is so handy. It not only provides a nice level and durable surface, but it also allows you to clamp together and square up face frames when you are attaching.

Tools that we fit in our tool organizer

Here are all of the Kreg tools and accessories that we were able to put in the bottom shelf of our clamp table after we built the DIY tool organizer.

We were able to fit so many Kreg tools on our shelves, here’s a full list:

Kreg 720PRO Pocket Hole Jig

If you’ve been following Making Manzanita for a bit, you know that we are big fans of the Kreg pocket hole system.

We built tons of projects using our original K5 Pocket Hole Jig, we even have a super detailed guide and video about how to use it that you can check out here.

In 2021, Kreg released brand new pocket hole systems that replaced the K4 and K5, and the upgrades are pretty awesome.

We used Kreg's pocket hole jig 720Pro to drill the pocket holes into the particle board while we were built this DIY tool shelving unit.

The new 720PRO (which we were using for this DIY tool organizer) and the 520PRO (which replaced the smaller K4 system) were improved a ton, the most noticeable change being that they are easier to set up and use – score.

My favorite new feature of 720PRO and 520PRO is the clamp that you don’t have to adjust anymore. You should clamp it down and it automatically adjusts to match the thickness of your wood, so cool, right?

Pocket hole joinery is definitely one of the easiest ways to join wood in woodworking projects. It’s our favorite hidden weapon for beginning woodworkers!

Want to learn more? I wrote a super detailed guide & created a video all about how to set up your Kreg 720PRO Pocket Hole and use it, so be sure to check that out too!

We teamed up with our friends Kreg again for these DIY tool organizer plans and are sharing them online for free, now available on KregTool.com!

Kreg’s website is chocked full of so many easy-to-follow FREE woodworking plans! I promise that you are going to find so much inspiration while you’re there! It is a goldmine!

Ready to see how the DIY tool organizer turned out??

Here's how the particle board tool storage shelves turned out for the bottom of our Kreg clamp table, which is able to hold and organize our jigs and accessories.

Here’s what the tool storage shelves look like without any tools added. I love that you can totally customize the plans to fit whatever tools that you have that you need to store.

The hooks on the end were a last-minute decision because I found the hooks when we were cleaning out our garage! They are perfect for hanging the 90-degree clamps and panel carrier, right?

The DIY tool organizer is so useful for storing and organizing our Kreg jigs and accessories.

We also just happened to have a few extra clear storage bins laying around the house that are perfect for rounding up some of the smaller pieces of the tools and accessories for the shelves.
