Drilling Pocket Holes
for Face Frames
Drilling pocket holes, angled holes, can be accomplished with or
without a jig. When beginning to drill a hole at an angle without a
jig, there is always the problem of the drill bit to slip/walk from
the center of your desired hole location.
Without a jig, drill straight down into the wood. After the drill
bit breaks the surface, change the angle of the drilling to the
desired angle and complete the drilling of the hole.
The most efficient way to drill a pocket hole is to use a simple
metal jig; they are available from Rockler for about $15; simply
clamp the jig in place and drill your angled hole.
