Kreg Owners' Community


I see lots of questions regarding selection of screws to match different thickness of timber.

There is a Kreg table somewhere on this site, but I could not find it so attached my copy of  it.

Hope it is of assistance.

Thanks, great chart.

Thanks for chart.  Does this chart apply to both "Edge Joints" and "Face Joints"?

Hi Steve

I am not sure exactly what you mean, but will attempt to answer anyway.

I don't think it would make any difference as to the grain orientation.

The "from" usually would be a screw entering the timber, (the pocket) in line with the grain and the "to" the point of the screw going into the timber across the grain.

In saying that I have joined boards edge to edge and had good results as well, (see my mushroom stool post)

I hope this helps

Huge help, thanks so much for posting this spreadsheet!

I have fine-tuned the spreadsheet to make it a bit easier for me to pick out the proper setting based on "From" - "To" materials. I have uploaded my revisions in both pdf and Excel files in case others may find it helpful as well.  


Looks even better than my attempt, hope all the members enjoy it.

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Kreg Jig Dust Collection Attachment

1st impression when you hold this attachment in your hand:  "not much to it", Kreg sure is makin' $$ here.

Then I installed it.. perfect fit, leaves just enough room to adjust the setting screw on my K4.

Then the real test, hook…
