I am designing a small shelf set for kids books. I am thinking that most of the pocket holes can be creatively hidden from view.
I am wondering if a pocket hole can be placed on the edge instead of the face? Hard to visualize, but the standard method is to place the wood to drill into the jig so that you are drilling into the face of a board. But, what if you took the drill block out of the jig and placed it along the edge?
I imagine strength would be compromised as it is the corner that does all the support, but these are small shelves.
