Pocket Hole Joinery: What You Need to Know:
Pocket hole joinery is popular because it is a fast, strong, easily adaptable, precise method of assembly. Joints are as strong as mortise & tenon joints and can be made in a fraction of the time. Award-Winning Kreg™ Jigs use a 3/8” counter-bore bit with an 11/64” pilot to drill a 15° angle into the first piece. With the joint tightly clamped, a special self-drilling pocket-hole screw is placed in the pocket and driven tight to complete the joint.
Pocket-Hole screws feature an auger point to prevent drilled material from being raised between the two parts which could cause gaps in the joint. A large pan-head with a #2 Square Recess and extended unthreaded shank enable a pocket hole screw to draw the two members of the joint tight.
