YouTube suggested this video to me which must be linked to something I have looked at recently https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ev4D1DXVj4 I laughed to myself as I thought of J&K and how much he approves of Kreg pocket hole joints :lol:

I'll bite and say, "So what?". My biggest gripe about pocket hole jigs is that there are idiots out there who insist on using them on inappropriate materials (and recommending their approach) - mainly MFC and MDF - for which they are not really suitable. The other thing I'd say is that if I were making hope chests I think I'd have enough pride in what I was doing to use mortises and tenons for the frames, or at least dowels (or more likely these days Dominos), where the joinery method is hidden (so no "professional looking" screw holes) and durability is assured. In shop fitting we often use quick and dirty techniques to crank out stuff which looks good, but which isn't al that durable (and with cheaper, stronger and faster techniques than pocket holes). But we know that they stuff will get ripped out in 5 to 8 years. On listed building stuff we need to be a bit more correct in our approach.

BTW, I DO use a pocket hole jig at times - it's just not the universal panacea that some folk think it is. See also current strapline for further commentary......

OK, I'm an "old school" chippie, so please don't ask me to do a bodge job - I didn't bring my horse today and in any case you don't seem to have a hitching rail!
