Kreg Owners' Community

 With all the accurate miter saws and table saws available and the Kreg Jig pocket screw system of today, the making of angled joints has allowed us to master the art of joining wood together.

 Since building a cabinet that runs along a wall in a straight line requires little or no angle cutting of stock, other that the 90 degree cut to length and join with a pocket screw.  Other configuration require the use of miters and angles.   I was wondering what everyones method is for doing cabinet runs that twist and bend into angles like like 22 1/2 degrees,  45 degrees and or some other angle to fit a wall or build a custom cabinets run other than a straight line or a 90 degree bend.  I know everyone has their own  methods and it would be interesting to hear about everyone's approach to this problem.

Something to aid you in doing the joints is to keep the heel of the joint even with the inside.  That causes the toe of the miter to extend out past the 90 degree.  Sand off the toe and always screw the miter into the 90 degree piece.   The photos should show you a good example.

Hi Ed just sand this off.  This is the part where you hide the joint by moving the location of where the eye will tell you that it should be.  The thing is that helps hide the joint is that the actual joint is not that the corner.  Glad to have you as a friend.


  • Jay,i have a question for you on your discussion of miter joints,when i cut a 45 degree on one stile and try to pocket screw to to a 90 degree , I get an extension of approx. 1/16 the full length of the stile, am i missing something or do i just sand that off.

Kreg Jig Dust Collection Attachment

1st impression when you hold this attachment in your hand:  "not much to it", Kreg sure is makin' $$ here.

Then the real test, hook…
