That's right! We are giving away a Precision Benchtop Router Table!

For your chance to win, you will need to start a new discussion within the forums. If you don't know how to start a discussion, we have included instructions below. Each community member may enter the giveaway once; multiple entries are not allowed.

The discussion you start needs to be about one of the following subjects:

  •  Tell us what you like the most, or least, about your project workspace, and why.
  • Create a list with a couple of your top tips for building projects.
  • What is your favorite project that you built with Kreg tools? Tell us the story behind it. Feel free to include pictures, if you have some.
  • Tell us about a project you'd really like to build, and how owning a Precision Benchtop Router Table would help make it possible.

Once you've selected a subject, this is how you start a discussion to post your answer:
1. Make sure that you are logged in. You must be a member of the community to start a discussion. From the community's main page, click on the navigation-bar tab that says Discussion Forums. After clicking, on the top left side of the page, you will see a button that says +Add. Click on that button to start your discussion.

2. This will take you to the page that lets you create a new discussion. First, give your discussion a title. The more specific and detailed, the better. A good title would be: My Current Shop Setup and Dream Shop Upgrades. If you want to add images, simply click on the photo icon highlighted below:

3. When you are finished writing, scroll down. This is where you can edit the category and details of your discussion. Start by selecting Community-Specific as the category. You can add tags (keywords) that relate to your discussion topic (i.e. tips, woodworking, etc.) and attach files (images, videos, etc.) here. But if you have images to include, we recommend uploading them by clicking on the photo icon pictured above. That way, they will display within your discussion post.

You can preview your discussion by clicking on the Preview button. Once you're happy with your post, hit the button that says Add Discussion. And that's it! Your discussion post is now live, which means you have successfully entered to win a Kreg Precision Benchtop Router Table! Good luck, and thank you for entering the giveaway!

That is a very good question?

If Canadian can buy the product they should be able to win product as well...

Its because of your Countries Law and the nature of the which they want you to enter the Contest. In this case Kreg is asking you to start a Thread which takes time away from you. Canada Law considers this a purchase to enter and well that is what makes it Illegal. Not to mention having to pay duty to the Régie just to have the contest. Seems like they dont like Contest up there. 

Joshua said: 'In this case Kreg is asking you to start a Thread which takes time away from you. Canada Law considers this a purchase to enter and well that is what makes it Illegal.'

Darcy replies: What?!! Starting a thread takes time away from you? So does filling in a ballot blank to win a Pilsner beer fridge in the Liqueur store. Canadian law does not consider this a purchase to enter, no more so than volunteering one's time at the food bank would be a charitable donation of cash.

I think its just typical Geocentric thinking...Canada has less people in the entire country than the state of California. While Canada may only have one person for every ten kilometers, it only proves that we Canadians are not as dense as some countries think we are. :-)

No Purchase Necessary”

Under our Criminal Code, it is also an illegal lottery to award prizes by any game of chance, or mixed skill and chance, where the entrant must pay money or other valuable consideration to play. 

What constitutes “consideration” can be a difficult analysis. Although a contest may not require an entrant to purchase a product to enter, it may require the contestant to take some other action that has value, such as watching a lengthy video (i.e. time) or requiring the entrant to complete an extensive survey (i.e. personal information). Generally speaking, where an entrant has to give up something of value or do something onerous to enter a contest, there is a risk that this will be construed as “consideration.”

Please, please and please enter me in the router table drawing. I desperately need one. Thanks

Joshua, are you located in Quebec? What you are quoting is refers to a pure lottery (complete random draw WITHOUT a skill testing question) and gambling machines.

To comply with Canadian law, one simply needs to add a skill testing question, such as, two times two equals what?

So why the 'only in USA' restriction for contest entries? My Canadian dollar is good enough to buy your product, why is my Canadian Citizenship and residency not good enough for the contest?

Not much of a Community if you can exclude a category of members just like that.

I'm with the other Canadians. And I would like a reply from Kreg to explain the exclusion. I am a big Kreg fan, tell all my fellow woodworkers about it and demonstrate it all the time. Just built an amazing blind corner cabinet with pullouts using almost only Kreg joinery. Being excluded seems to say, as someone else said - that our money is good for purchases but we're not worth the marketing cost of the contest. Stinks.

but many contests I have seen do include Canadians, while others don't.

Look as usual to the laws of over regulating governments.
This is our own fault for allowing these bureaucrats to inflict their stupidity
on capitalist markets that work fine without them. Get involved or continue to suffer.
