A faster, easier way to build.
Imagine a magical tool that cuts the construction time of cabinetry and other woodworking projects in half, and eliminates the need for an expensive arsenal of clamps. Pocket-hole jigs help give you such advantages. And best of all, they’re easy to use.
Traditional joinery—chopping mortises and cutting tenon or drilling and aligning dowel holes—takes a lot of time. With a pocket-hole jig, however, you can join two pieces of wood in just minutes. All it takes is a portable electric drill, the jig, and a counterbore bit designed to be used with the jig. You’ll also need a special type of auger-point screw designed to seat tightly and not split the wood.
You can find a variety of pocket-hole jigs on the market, and we compare today’s models. To get you started, we’ll take a look at the basics of pocket-hole joints and then show you how to build cabinets and other types of projects.
