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!

First let me say thank you for inventing such a great product. My jigs are important because it has been 30 years since i've built anything. I love this tool, I can not wait until I retire (3 years left) so i can get into my shop full time. Again thanks for a great product.

What a nugget of wisdom!

Thanks!

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".
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!

Ilove this jig so mutch I sold my dovetail jig and my biscut jointer after I bought it.the Kreg jig has let me do so mutch more stuff, faster than before.

Great tool! Saves a lot of time waiting for glue, too! Sure would have saved a ton of time, if I could have assembled my CNC router with it ;-}

I love my K3. The Kreg pocket hole tool makes building easy. I have limited time for building but the Kreg makes it so easy that I can enjoy building things in a short amount of time. One of these days I will have the kit that has it all and a shop to use it in. I can't wait.


I am the type of person that when I start a project I like to finish it without stopping. I don't like to wait for glue to dry. With the Kreg Pocket Hole Jig there is no waiting. For a strong joint just assemble a Pocket Hole Joint, there is no waiting for the glue to dry. For a really Strong joint add glue to the pocket hole joint, again there is no waiting for the glue to dry. I assembled the trusses and the door frames for the building in the picture with pocket Hole Screws.

That's funny!

This is a picture of Robert, my husband. He thinks he wants to divorce me because our projects get biger and bigger. I will give him one but not without a small price. I think I will take the Kreg Jig Tools, and his beat up truck! He can keep the 4 girls and the dog. If I can use Kreg to build a mirror frame, a cabinet for his china, a bar with doors, and help (direct :-) him with the front porch, I think I will take some more of his money, buy me more Kreg Jig Tools and start building my one room shack for my new furniture business. Okay, okay, okay, I'll cut him a little slack. He can borrow Kreg on week-ends and holidays and I'll keep the dog!!! lol :+}

Not criticizing but did you forget to put battery in drill?

My first project was two cabinots in the laundry room. My wife said she wanted cabonets on the other side wall but with baskets underneath. my third project was a cabonet for my router. This time used all scrap wood and connected them together with my kreg jig. My next project is a wall unit with bottom cabonets uper shelves,doors, computer station and tv area. I need lots of screws thanks Ron Bouchard
About 60% into a kitchen remodel. The cabinets behind me were built using the Kreg Jig. Cases, face frames, beaded molding, doors, drawers all have some type of Kreg pocket joinery. The face frame and doors on the opposite side were also built using Kreg. I also built a spice cabinet and pantry. The greatest product since the invention of wood. Now all I have left is paint, counter tops, crown molding, new appliances....

Miter Saw Recommendation

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?

Miter saw stand

     Has anyone used one of the Kreg Universal Stand configurations as the base for a miter saw workstation with fold down wings?  I scrolled through the pics in the community and all I saw were using a DIY base cabinet.  I have an extra Kreg router…Continue

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…
