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.

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
