Kreg.com is helpful,too.Great job,sir!
Wow, extremely grateful for the info. Getting ready to purchase and start some cabinets. Thanks
WOW! That’s insane!! I’m getting one ASAP
Great video! Better than the one that Kreg put together for their pocket hole jig that I just bought. Glad I found your video!
Thank you so much for this video! I just bought a jig for a bed I’m making and now I feel prepared before I use it for the first time!
1:40 your welcome
kregs jigs have wery lot owerprize same tools can buy 1/4 prize copy, and smart men do jig diy at home wery easy make, idiot pay lot kreg jigs.
Just bought a jig & can’t wait to use it! Thank you for these helpful tips!
Just what i looked for. Great video. Thank you.
Great video!..I was tasked to teach farm machinery which includes construction. Your videos really helped.
By the way, how did you make your videos?
I use kreg jig /pocket screws for face frames but trying to assemble an entire project using only pocket screws is tedious. I much prefer just using glue and regular screws or nails with a nail gun to assemble boxes and the kreg jig for face frames. the end product is very strong. large cabinets I will also have internal cleats in places you dont see them. I dont have the tooling to dado everything together or do dovetails and honestly think its a waste of time unless you are making something that is meant to be an absolute showpiece. even then ….no one really cares…..
I got the dutch version with the metric system! Love it,
Wow this necessary
Great video, wish I would have watched before I built a new front porch.
I go shallow on my step and use course drywall screws on anything 2×4 and up.
steve I bought the cutting board
software and when I wanted to build a pop up box said that i had to make a slice can you tell me how to do that thanks
I need to get me a Kreg K4 or K5. I built a workbench using pocket hole joinery (at least the base of it.
Will one pocket hole work on a narrow (1-1/2) door frame?
do you use the same jig for large wood planks?
Another great video Steve, I’m very much a novice and was forced to retire. I plan on doing a fair amount of woodworking and some craft type projects with my wife and grandson 11 years old. Is K5 a good jig to start with?
Thanks. I got one for Xmas and I’m new to wood projects. This was very informative.
Who else is watching this as a refresher? 😀
Very fine production. It explained it all so well. So I bought one already and will try it soon. I had to learn from the Master!
Très très bonne explications je debute et je crois avoir bien compris les ystème Merci.
Thanks for your tutorial! Now I am ready to start making holes! Thanks so much! : )
Your videos are so concise and well photographed. If I have to listen to a part more than once, it’s pretty easy to backtrack and locate the spot without having to go through more info than needed. I compliment you, your camera person, and your sharp editing skills. I’ve always been a little intimidated by using jigs, but this makes it seem so easy. Thank you!
thanks so much for this video. i recently built a bed and I needed to put together some face frames. I bought the kreg jig to build them but had no idea how to actually use it. This video was very helpful for me. I am not subscribed.
Pocket joinery sure has its place, but I would only patch the holes if I were going to paint, not stain. This is joinery to be hidden, not displayed, obviously. PS: Great colour T shirt!
I use pocket screws almost daily doing finish carpentry.
Thanks for this. Is there anything out there for 4X4 pocket holes? Are pocket holes even recommended for something that stout?
thank you so much for all your tips! they are so helpful. my favorite part is telling me what NOT TO DO! so often professionals just assume people know the tiny tid bits of stuff that they know too. but we dont. you do a great job letting us know the things that may be super obvious to a pro, but not to a beginner.
Really a good instructional video. It moves right along and pays attention to detail. I’m betting you’ve e saved new users a lot of time and lumber if they’re smart enough to watch YouTube how-to’s before barging in.
Ly kreg jig is an indispensable part of my
woodshop and I use it in most bui
Love pocket holes!
Very well explained on the use of the Kreg jig !!
I use a Kreg system and it just to useful not to use it. Used to use biscuits and saw but have slowly gotten away from it. For fine work I own a mortiser and tendon jig for the table saw.
Just came across this channel…wow, this guy is good, great screen presence, awesome editing, no umms/ahhhs, not a single out-of-focus shot, and a Mystery Spot bumper sticker sighting…this is YouTube at its finest.
I’m on a fixed income so I can’t keep buying the newest or latest version of tools
Hi, I’m Fernando and I live in Ecuador, your video is very interesting. I would like to know if you could add subtitles in Spanish so that you can learn from all the tips you indicate.
What mesurment do you use when screwing 2" × to a 3/4"? Or better put, two different thickness. Also , how do you determine the length of screw to use on multiple thicknesses?
Nice video I’m planning on getting a pocket hole drill kit.
There’s quite a few and I want it to last.
Great video as usual! 👍 👍
great video! Answered a lot of questions I had. New to doing pocket holes. I bought the smaller jig I think it is a R3. Looking forward to some projects.
Great video! Well explained while at the same time hands-on
Another great video. I love, love, love pocket hole joinery. I make a ton of corn hole boards, with pocket holes doing all of the work. I don’t do it for profit, but it seems everyone knows someone who would like me to make them a set of boards. Back when I wasn’t sure how much I’d use it, I purchased a cheaper model from Harbor Freight. It actually has done a nice job, but you’re right about the massive quantity of sawdust it produces. I have to blow it away after every drilling, and I really love the idea of being able to attach my dust collector to it. Enough that I might buy the Kreg anyways.
Tip:When screwing in and using bar clamps and similar ones,dont’t clamp too tightly,clamp just enough to hold wood together.I did my first one too tight and the 2 pieces warped on me when I screwed them together.
