People often talk of building with the Kreg Jig®, but drilling pocket holes is only half the story. It’s the screws, after all, that hold your project together. That means choosing the right one is critical for project success.

At first glance, a Kreg Screw might not look much different from other wood screws. But don’t be fooled: There’s a lot of serious engineering built into them. Compare a Kreg Screw to an ordinary wood screw or a drywall screw (which many use as a general-purpose screw for building), and you can see that the Kreg Screw has unique features that those other screws don’t. Every one of those features is there to ensure that you get the best results possible.
