I was first introduced to the Kreg Jig by my friends Ana White and Rayan with The Design Confidential. If you are joining two different thicknesses of wood, use the thinner board to set your measurements. Set your wood into the jig, line up the end you want to drill holes in at the bottom of the jig.
To complete your joint, clamp the pieces together and drive kreg jig screws into the pocket holes and into the second piece of wood. There is a clamp that comes with the Kreg Jig (you can use it to clamp on top and bottom of the joint), but I prefer a larger clamp like this IRWIN clamp so that the wood doesn’t get marred.
It might be helpful for you to just drill some holes in scrap wood to play and see how the jig works before using it on a finished piece. Post your projects & plansShare your projects and plans with others in the Start Woodworking community.

Dowel centers allow you to make strong joints in situations where a conventional dowel jig might not work. The conventional doweling jigs available through most tool and woodworking supply retailers work very well in most situations. I purchased the jig with my own money and wrote this tutorial to give my readers the basic tips for using one. But, the three hole guide block slides up and down and you set that (in addition to the collar on the drill bit) to the width of your wood. In the example outlined here, I'm joining what might be a fictional face-frame assembly where two pieces of stock are meeting in a perpendicular manner. Today I have a great tool for creating strong joints when building with wood and furniture construction. Simply set the drill bit into the groove and line up the step (the spot where the drill bit goes from wide to narr0w) with the measurement that corresponds to the thickness of your wood.

Kreg Jig has this handy chart to find the correct screw lengths (the left vertical side in the chart is the thickness of the board receiving the pocket holes. I get to the stage where i just use screws in the butt joint way… boring but it is the only thing that works. I am a newbie in woodwork and I am looking for some advice on what else is required to start with pocket holes. They work by making a small dimple mark in the opposing piece, perfect for catching the end of a drill bit. In my case, this next series of holes needs to be drilled in the end grain of a potentially long workpiece.
