""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 Michael Meyer's discussion 'What is it?'

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 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, 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.
