Suggested Woodworking Tools: Pocket Hole Jigs.
|Besides the basic Hammer, Carpenter's Square, Circular Saw, Miter Saw, Router and Drill, you may want to explore some more advanced yet easy woodworking methods that do not require a boat load of money to acquire or use.|
One of my favorite "joinery" techniques is the use of a Pocket Hole to join two solid hardwood boards, mostly for framing of cabinet doors such as that used for the keg box or for the assembly of drawers. Pocket holes may also be used for creating strong joints for bar trim on the back side of the bar or for the bar back unit itself.
In a nutshell, a Pocket Hole is simply a hole drilled at an extreme angle to allow a screw to join two hardwood boards together. A pocket hole jig is required to guide a special drill bit set at the proper angle and to allow the two holes to be drilled next to each other with precision.
Pocket Hole joints are easy to do and only require an inexpensive Pocket Hole Jig which consists of a jig body and associated 3/8" drill bit with a stop to set the depth of the pocket hole.
The other option for this type of joinery is the biscuit joiner, which requires a more expensive power tool to cut the biscuit groove and then requires a clamping system to be used while the glue dries. Pocket Hole Joinery requires no clamping and creates very strong joints since the joint is held together by both glue and the pocket hole screw itself.
Once you start using this technique, you find many other places to use pocket hole joinery.
