The Pocket Hole Joinery Book - Review

As a Kreg Jig Owner for many years now; I still really appreciate seeing books that are for weekend woodworkers(like me) with basic plans and tools to build pocket hole projects.  The Pocket Hole Joinery Book, by Mark Edmunson is put together with these things in mind.  The book lays out eight different projects with basic diagrams and step by step instructions.  My personal favorite was the Blanket Bench project.  The author also includes a comprehensive, yet easy to read intro to pocket holes.  He covers many various types of jigs, clamps, and screws all geared for pocket hole jig owners.

Projects from the book include:

  • Blanket Bench
  • Mirror and Picture Frame
  • Built-In Bookcase
  • End Table
  • Daybed
  • Bed
  • Bathroom Vanity
  • Dresser

While I really enjoyed this book, my only criticism is that I wish there had been more projects included.  Eight projects is respectful, but I wish there had been a few more included.  I think you'll enjoy this book and the projects included.  If you're considering purchasing this book another title to check out is the Pocket Hole Drilling Jig by Danny Proulx.  Both books really complement each other, and if you are new to pocket holes I think you'll find them helpful.  Check out the titles over at Amazon, there both reasonably priced.
