Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Proulx, who builds custom kitchen cabinets and has authored a number of woodworking titles, introduces readers to the latest indispensable woodworking gadget: the pocket hole drilling jig. Pocket holes are drilled at an angle using a special bit, facilitating the quick production of strong joinery without clamps; screws are typically used for strength and are hidden within a project (although Proulx sometimes places holes in exposed locations where they are filled with contrasting wood for a striking effect). Besides information on several commercial jigs and instructions for a shop-made jig, Proulx shows how to make several joints. Projects include cabinetry, tables, clocks, a mirror, a quilt rack, and a bench. The straightforward text and excellent illustrations are appropriate for readers of every skill level. Although this subject sounds esoteric, it is sure to interest woodworkers because it is relatively easy, and the equipment is inexpensive. For larger woodworking collections.
