Pocket Screw joinery

I heard about the pocket screw joinery several years ago and had doubts about it, than a friend convinced me to try his “Craig pocket hole jig” on my next job, I did and now I’m hooked. It makes a super tight joint with or with out glue, cuts assembly time by more than half. Great for cabinets, face frames, book cases, aprons on tables I could go on forever.

It’s very easy to use and set up is a breeze. The one I bought was just over $120 and came with a few extra accessories but it was money well spent. my first project is posted here “Bath Room vanity’s”


I use the harbor freight pocket hole jig. I think it’s made better than the Kreg jig. It’s all metal, no plastic parts at all. It’s worth a look if you are wanting a pocket hole jig

I discovered pocket hole joinery back when I was teaching shop in the early 90’s. Great stuff. Bought the Kreg set up and built a display/storage unit for around the HVAC unit in our hot tub house.

Had a young man working for me at the time, so he got to learn some how to use the set up.

Built in four units, then moved in and assembled. All pocket screws. This is before the final finish and glass shelves and brackets.

Not to brag or anything, but here’s what I built with my pocket hole jig. All the structural framework is pocket holed, with plywood skin covered in fiberglass

Needs refinishing though. I promised the wife it would be done in time for the annual camping trip that year, and just barely made it. I’d like to sand it back down, and apply some fairing compound to smooth it out more, and then shoot about 3 coats of white on the whole thing, including the door so it matches :-)

Very cool. Looks awesome. white would look good.

Nicely done. You can add white to epoxy then just cover the whole thing, that’s what I would do anyway.
