""B" is always better - points the screw into the 'meat' of the wood. That said, you can often get away with "A" with thicker material. Probably 80% of the time with 3/4" ply. Rare that "A" will reliably…"

Scott replied to Duane Heda's discussion 'Drawer Slide Jig- is it worth the money?'
"What I found interesting about the Rockler product was the clamping mechanism to hold the drawer slide. I recently happened into the local Rockler store and saw the mounting jig was on sale. Luckily I paused for a moment to go read the on-line…"

Scott replied to Michael Meyer's discussion 'What is it?'
"These are often referred to as hanger bolts. Commonly used with top/leg mounting plates And corner leg / apron brackets Bonus round - the fastener that has the coarse threads on both ends is known as a dowel screw"

Scott replied to Duane Heda's discussion 'Concealed Hinge Jig good or bad?'
"The concealed hinge jig is worthwhile investment for even a project that only requires a couple of hinges! I've drilled 100's of those 35mm holes with a small drill press - what a pain in the process that has been. Now I pull the Kreg…"

Scott replied to Pat Meeuwissen's discussion 'evenly spaced holes on a large carcass?'
"I feel your pain as I too have such tendencies... When those ocd moments hit me, I've marked the piece with a ruler, or cut a scrap piece to use as a spacer. Another approach is to mark the table with tape or something for the distance - not…"

Scott replied to Laura's discussion 'Pocket hole in drawer sides -1/2"'
"This could be a no-harm, no-foul situation... Since the 5/8" setting positions the hole "higher' up the board compared to the 1/2" setting, I would try re-drilling the same spot with the 1/2" setting. The seat of the…"

Scott replied to Anthony Corwin's discussion 'Should I paint/stain before or after?'

Scott, I went to the shop and prepared a sample of what I am saying about plywood jointing hardwood in a 45 degree miter.  In this situation I cut the 45 degree miter on the solid stock and pocket screwed it to the plywood.  I photograped and it is shown without any finish on it.  There is no wood filler and if you look you will see that you can match the wood grain and color  with a little work.  All I did here was go through some scraps I had, therefore if you pick the lumber and the sheet goods you can make a joint that is almost non visible even without a finish.  The solid stock in the one with the large black knot.  It is alder and the other is a piece of birch plywood.

Festool Domino 500

The first thing I will do is set price aside and focus on the tool and why I bought the Domino.

Kreg Foreman

I have built many kitchens and finally decided to buy the Foreman, because my latest kitchen consisted of 28 cabinets and I was over my hand hurting from all the drilling, moving the clamp etc., it seemed like a smart choice.
