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!
A garbage/recycling bin container using the Kreg pocket jig to fasten ipe to the framing without seeing any exposed screws or nails. Without this jig, there would have been no other way to fasten the the top rail, left, middle, & right stile without exposed fasteners (other than glue).
Thanks to my Kreg Jig I was able to make my first piece of real furniture, a full-size red oak dining room table. My friends and family are quite envious. I never tire telling the tale of my first Kreg project.
Can't really enter because I'm stuck in a hospital, but here is an idea of where my mind is:
no more biscuits!
no more dowels!
i've got a kreg jig,
and my friends think me an owl.
It's kind of funny, but when I sit here thinking of projects, everything looks like a frame. Reminds me of what my father once said, "when your only tool is a hammer, everything looks like a nail".
