Be aware that getting those holes drilled perfectly is
a much bigger problem than you can imagine. The MEG is
done by a CNC machine(not a drill press) and if you make
the jig, it requires a great deal of precision to get
those holes the EXACT distance apart.
If they are not exact, when the piece of stock is turned
around and the jig is positioned at the center point,
the holes will not be exactly opposite of one another.
Don't ask how I know this......(proud owner of a MEG jig)
I did mine in a mill .. clamped the plate above a sacrificial board & drilled away
.. .. .. holes MAY be off by .001" or so, but hey - for free vs, the REAL thing ..
.. .. I'll not complain.

I know that it is not exactly what you want but I have used the Woodhaven
jig that is made out of phenolic. It is not wood so it will not absorb
water and it is much cheaper than the megaproducts unit (which is very
nice). I have drilled thousands of holes with mine. Check out:
