If you're a professional trim carpenter or a serious DIY woodworking enthusiast, you owe it to yourself to learn more about pocket-hole joinery! Pocket-hole joinery is a relatively new joinery technique that uses a special pocket-hole jig, step-drill bit, and self-tapping screws to produce strong, tight-fitting wood joints. It takes a fraction of the time of more traditional methods such as doweling, biscuiting, and mortise and tenons.

Gary Striegler, a second-generation homebuilder with over 25 years of hands-on experience, demonstrates some of his time-proven techniques for creating classic home details that set his work apart from the competition.

In this nearly two-hour video, watch as Gary uses the speed, strength, and simplicity of pocket-hole joinery to create a variety of eye-catching trim details for the home.

Learn how pocket-hole joinery is used to build wainscoting, fireplace mantels, bookcases, window seats, newell posts, stairs, and door-jamb extensions.
