Kreg Owners' Community

Our friends at Woodworkers Guild of America recently published a video we thought some of you may enjoy: Making a Drawer Lock Joint. It features the new Kreg Precision Router Lift

Drawer lock joints made using a drawer lock router bit are a great way to put drawers together. Once the setup is right the joint can be cut very fast, and the mechanical interlock the joint provides makes it very strong. 

For a drawer lock joint to fit correctly, the height of the bit and the fence position must both be perfect. If either one is off, you’ll have a lousy fit, which compromises the joint. They go over this and more in the video

That bit can be fussy to set up unless you have a micro dial. Otherwise it does a great job. Very strong joint.

Once you get the bit height dialed in, make a setup block in order to speed up next time you use the bit. Saves a lot of time and headaches.

I have the setup block that came with the bit. It works great but I don't have a micro dial to tune it finely.

The Kreg Project Center is great by itself, but 2 KPC's are better than 1 when you want to set up a 12 ft. work station in a couple minutes.…
