have used pocket hole joinery for years ...and for good reason. It's a simple way to achieve a strong, professional quality
pocket hole is simply a hole drilled at an angle that forms a "pocket" for the screw to drive into. Think of it
as a "highly engineered" toe-nailing technique. What makes it precise is the design of the pocket hole jig that
guides the drill bit into the wood at a specific angle to produce a carefully "engineered" hole to house the screw
After the pocket hole is drilled, a specially designed fastener is used to assemble the joints. These case-hardened
screws are designed with self-drilling tips that will not split the wood while the screws are driven in, even in hardwoods.
