Using a Pocket-Hole Jig

A pocket-hole jig makes cabinet assembly fast and easy

Length: 6:40
Produced By: John Ross

When mortise-and-tenon joinery is impractical or just too difficult to master, consider using a pocket-hole jig. As Fine Homebuilding contributor and architectural designer Mike Maines demonstrates, this tool is easy to learn to use and makes strong hidden joints for cabinet boxes, face frames, and more.

To learn how Mike builds cabinets, desks, bookcases, and pantries using a pocket-hole jig, read A Faster, Easier Approach to Custom Cabinets from Fine Homebuilding issue #200 (December 2008/January 2009), pp. 62-67.
