Kreg Owners' Community


Each year we receive hundreds of emails and letters from Kreg Jig owners letting us know why they love their Kreg Jig!  Starting June 25th, and through the month of July, we will be holding a “My Kreg Jig®” photo contest, and awarding a Year’s Supply* of Kreg Screws along with an assortment of Kreg Hats/Shirts!  If you have a Kreg Jig and a digital camera, this is your chance to win big!  To participate, you must be a member of the Kreg Jig Owners' Community.  If you're not yet, don't worry, it only takes 2 minutes to sign-up!


Details: 

  • Each photo should include both you and your Kreg Jig®.  You can be drilling pocket-holes, standing on it, leaning on it, holding it in your hands… it doesn’t matter, as long as both you and your Kreg Jig® are in the shot. 
  • Entries must be posted as a reply in this forum thread.  
  • Photos should be embedded in the post, not linked to so that they can be seen by simply scrolling down… no extra click required. 
  • Please also include a brief testimonial-type description (a few sentences) of why you like your Kreg Jig®; what it has done for you, how it has changed the way you work, what projects possibilities it has opened up, etc. 
  • All entries must be submitted by July 29th.
  • Results/Winnings will be posted on the Kreg Jig Owners’ Community (KJOC),  August 3rd.  Criteria below. 


Winnings: 

Boy, it sure pays to be a Kreg Jig Owners' Community member!  KregRep will contact all winners through community Private Message at the conclusion of the contest to get your shirt size, mailing address, etc.    

  • Grand Prize:  Your Choice of 10,000 Kreg Screws.  Up to 3 varieties.  Option to substitute 2,000 Stainless Screws
  • First Entrant:  To get things off on the right foot, the first person to post here, meeting the above criteria, will receive a free Kreg Multi-Mark.  Hurry!  Do you have any idea how many other Kreg Jig owners are reading this right now!?!  ;) UPDATE: 'First Entrant' Prize awarded.
  • 10 Random Winners:  10 additional winners will be picked at random, using the tools at random.org.  Winners will receive one Kreg Hat and one Kreg Shirt.  


Judging Criteria: 

The bottom line… is ‘have fun!’  We have to have some criteria to determine the Grand Prize winner, but if your photo isn’t that great, don’t sweat it!  We’re not all professional photographers… any photo with you and your Kreg Jig® will be fine… and remember, you’re just as likely as any other entrant to being one of the 10 random winners.  A small team of Kreg employees – including KregRep – will determine the winning photo.  Criteria for the winning photo is summarized below: 

  • Believability (photo and description) – Does the person actually like the tool/technique?
  • Entertainment Value – How entertaining/humorous/engaging is the photo? The more creative, the better!
  • Photography – How is the lighting?  Can the person/tool be seen clearly?  General photo quality.  


How-To:

Photos should be embedded in a forum post below.  You can find detailed instructions for doing this… here.  Please do not simply 'link' to your photo, embed it if you can so we can all see the post without clicking. If you have any questions about shooting or uploading photos, feel free to ask them in that thread as well.

* In the event of more than 200 photo entries, ’10 Random Winners’ will become ’20 Random Winners!’  Double the number of winners!  Tell your friends, spread the word! 

* "Year's Supply" is based on an internal estimate.  Some woodworkers will use more than 10,000 screws in one year... most will use far less.

* Multiple entries (with unique text and photos) are welcome and will be included in the drawing.

* No Purchase Necessary


*UPDATE: CONTEST WINNERS HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED!  A SPECIAL THANKS TO ALL PARTICIPANTS!  YOU ARE ALL WHAT MAKES THIS COMPANY WORK!

Here is a picture of my Kreg Jig in action with help from my youngest "Master Woodworker".

The Kreg system allowed me to make my first real cabinet a winner. 68" x 30" corner to corner measured within less than 1/16th of an inch. I have promised my little girl her own room with built-ins for two years....now she is close to getting it. Her brother is helping me in the picture.

My wife asked me to make the drawers and doors inset.......couldn't have done it without the Kreg Master System. My neighbor has now asked me to help him build a cabinet for the TV.....now my wife wants me to rearrange and fix her cabinets.....you have opened a pandora's box.
Contest winners will be announced tomorrow, great job everybody!
I'm looking forward to some more screws, but the hat and t-shirt would also be great!!

Hey! KregRep and the whole Kreg gang! Thanks for the screws!

I had a lot of fun putting these pictures together, and wanted to say that everyone else also did a great job!

Since I live about 30 min from the Kreg factory, I'm planning to drive to Huxley and pick up my prize in person. Going to get a tour of the facility too!

Again, congrats to all the other winners and great job by everyone who posted! Thanks!

I love my kreg Jig tools and accessories! Especially the K3 Masterjig with vacuum attachment, and the quick change kit makes switching from drill bit to screwdriver very handy. I have used pocket-hole joinery in almost all of my projects since receiving my K3 Master system! I find this method not only quick and easy, but it is also very strong! I recently built a bench using 2x4 boards with 2-1/2 Inch, #8 Coarse Pocket Screws. The results was unbelievably strong.

Hi my name is Fred Marshall and I find that with the kreg jig I am able to construct irregular angles with ease. The headboard was constructed using 350 pocket screws. This would be impossible using dowles or splines. I use pocket screwes in most of my projects.

Tell me more about your teardrop camper. From the picture It looks really cool. Dan.

Glenn Wallin said:

I just finished building a Teardrop camper trailer and used the jig for the whole trailer...am thinking of changing the name of the camper to "Kregster!" I love this jig!
