The Kreg Jig Jr. (R3) is an amazing repair jig and an exceptionally handy addition to any tool collection. Whether you’re crawling under a table to make a quick repair or taking Kreg Joinery on the road, the Jr.’s compact design lets you work where you need to most, and it gives you what you need to start building wood joints that will last the life of your creation.
Kreg Joinery: No Glue or Complicated Math Required
The Kreg Jig Jr. takes advantage of a technique called Kreg Joinery. Unlike other techniques, Kreg Joinery requires no glue, no complicated math, and no small army of clamps to make wood joints that will last.
With Kreg Joinery, you can finish projects in hours instead of days. You won’t spend any time clamping, waiting for glue to dry, or wading through complicated math. It essentially involves drilling a hole at an angle into one workpiece, and connecting it to another workpiece with a self-tapping screw.
Amazingly Strong with Half the Effort
Unlike mortise and tenons, dowels, and biscuits, the self-tapping screws inside of every Kreg Joint hold the stock together without glue. You don’t have to worry about precisely lining up dowel holes, or spending hours cutting a perfect mortise and tenon–you simply drill the holes, drive the screws, and move on to the next project.
And because what you see is what you get with Kreg Joinery, you won’t spend all your time calculating stock-overlaps and dry-fitting individual workpieces. All you need is simple math to get fast and accurate results.
Kreg Jig Jr: The Perfect Home-Repair Tool
The Kreg Jig Jr. is an amazing repair jig with a compact design that lets you work where you need to most. Thanks to its Clamp Pad Adapter, the Jr. can be secured to the workpiece with any standard bar clamp or c-clamp. In addition, the adapter allows the jig to be attached directly to any Kreg Face Clamp (sold separately) for faster and more repeatable pocket-holes.
From thin drawer boxes and craft projects to stout 2×4’s, this jig can handle them all. Independent Easy-Press positioning sliders feature nine separate depth settings, allowing you to easily join materials from 1/2-inch to 1-1/2-inches thick in 1/8-inch increments. And to set the jig properly, you simply depress the button on the side of the jig and move the sliders so your material thickness is aligned with the arrow on the jig body. It couldn’t be any easier.
The Kreg Jig Jr. includes a compact, durable plastic carrying case that will ensure that you always have the tool, drill bit, and screws on hand to complete your next project. As a bonus, the case features a molded depth collar gauge for a handy reference.
In addition to the Kreg Jig Jr. (model R3), Kreg offers DIYers and anyone new to Kreg joinery the Kreg Jig (model K4). For serious wood workers, Kreg offers the Kreg Jig Master System (model K3MS), the ultimate kit for Kreg Joinery.
The Kreg Difference
While each Kreg Jig has its own features designed to meet the particular needs of its users, all Kreg Jigs share a design and high-quality construction which add up to the “Kreg Difference.”
Each Kreg Jig features hardened steel drill guides that carry a 100-percent lifetime guarantee. The body of each Kreg Jig is made from a heavy-duty glass-reinforced nylon that offers the resiliency and flexibility you need without sacrificing strength and durability.
To create a cleaner pocket-hole and a more finished appearance, all Kreg Jigs shroud the bit and support the workpiece through 100-percent of the drill-stroke. The end result is minimal bit deflection, reduced tear-out, and a clean, pluggable Pocket-Hole fit for finished work.
Every Kreg Jig also features an optimized 15 degree drilling angle designed to increase driving efficiency and minimize the overall size of the Pocket-Hole. This same Pocket-Hole can be created by the Kreg Jig in materials from 1/2- to 1-1/2 inches thick.
The Kreg Jig Jr. includes a 30 Day Customer Satisfaction Guarantee and Lifetime Warranty on its Hardened Steel Drill Guide.
What’s in the Box

If you’d rather create your own lines rather than live between existing lines, this Router Pantograph stencil tracing jig is the thing for you. The Pantograph enables the user the flexibility to follow any paper stencil with an easily controlled stylus while the router bit cuts the same pattern into the workpiece at a 40%, 50% or 60% size reduction.

Enjoy expanded signmaking capabilities by following any printed stencils you choose instead of being restricted to manufactured templates. Router not included.
Rejecting the “badly constructed, over-ornate, meaningless” furniture of the late Victorian period, architect, furniture designer and manufacturer Gustav Stickley developed a radical new design concept that stressed careful workmanship, simplicity, and utility. His important monthly magazine The Craftsman (1901–16) published construction plans for his distinctly American furniture.
The 62 simple, straightforward projects reprinted here — exquisite examples of Stickley’s classic designs — first appeared in The Craftsman between 1903 and 1907. Included are projects large and small enough to satisfy the household needs and creative urges of any woodworker. Make authentic reproductions of handsome, functional, sturdy Craftsman home furnishings from bookcases to bedsteads, dressers to dining tables, a hall tree, a foot rest, a wood-box and more — future family heirlooms that will stand the test of time both in durability and in clean, elegant purity of line. Each project includes Stickley’s original information for woodworkers of the early 1900s: a perspective drawing of the completed piece; a brief description of the item with suggestions for appropriate choices of wood; a “mill bill” giving complete lumber specifications; and schematic drawings showing both front and side views with accurate measurements.
All woodworkers, even beginners, will delight in this collection of genuine Stickley plans for 62 of the finest, most desirable pieces of Craftsman or “mission-style” furniture. Antique collectors, furniture restorers, and historians of American style also will appreciate the detailed information on an influential design movement enjoying a resurgence in popularity.

Learn the Best Woodworking Techniques Today!
As a person who just got recently interested in woodworking, you need to gain a lowdown on this hobby, so you can fully immerse yourself on what this activity is all about. Woodworking is a craft that asks but a few things from its pursuers:
Firstly, one needs creativity. Everyone is born with this trait, but a woodworker must develop a real desire to create using wood in order to fully appreciate this craft.
Secondly, craftsmen require patience and care to ensure the quality of their craft. This observance to properness produces woodwork of fine quality and helps develop and improve skill.
Lastly, the craftsman’s tools. A woodworker would be lost without his most basic kit, which usually consists of his handsaw, pocket-knife and oil stone to sharpen his blades. A small assortment of wood scraps set aside to supplement whatever project you are making will also come in handy. However, this is not the complete set of basic tools a woodworker has to have, but the set that he absolutely must have in any situation.
In “The Ultimate Woodworking Guide and Projects for Beginners!” you will learn everything every beginner needs to know, from setting up a workshop, scrutinizing wood, the basic safety rules of woodworking, and putting your knowledge into practice.
