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!
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.
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:
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!
Contest winners will be announced tomorrow, great job everybody!
Congratulations to all of our winners! You all did an amazing job, and we appreciate your participation in the contest! Personal messages have been sent to all of the winners (below) and they have been asked to forward on their mailing address and winning preferences to KregRep so the winnings can be sent out!
10 Random Winners (chosen by random.org)
1 Grand Prize Winner (chosen per criteria laid out in original post)
Great job everyone, a very successful contest, and some very entertaining entries! A big thanks from the entire Kreg Family!
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.
