it is called a kregtool. I just have the single jig with the drill bit. i think they sell for 15 to 20. They make some nicer ones that have a 3 pocket jig with a clamp but they are like 60-70. The bolt holes were made with a 3/4 inch spade bit so i could get the socket in.

Taking the handle off


A piece of 1/2" particle board (osb, flake board, whatever). Cut a 3'x4' pice from a 4'x8' piece and used liquid nails to glue it to the top. Used ratcheting straps to help hold the wood to set glue.


Took the inside lid panel off and installed a sythetic wood piece. i then ran bolts from the top of the 1/2 particle board to the bottom of this piece to add some stability and help the glue set.

i left the "stock" insulation sandwiched between the 1/4 pice you see and the top of the lid.
