I want to introduce you to one of my favorite workshop tools – the Kreg pocket hole jig. If you don’t own at least one pocket hole jig, you really ought to consider getting one. There is a jig for every price point and/or frequency of use.
One of the things that I love about the town that I live in all of the streetlights that are reminiscent of the last century.
