    Pocket holes are probably stronger, but more difficult to hide. I like pocket holes for cabinets where I can hide the pocket holes since I don’t like filling them after inserting the screw.

    Biscuits are great since they are hidden.

    I’ve been thinking of getting one after a guy at work raves on them.
    No clamping, which I guess is nice as well

    They are nice. They have different purposes. I think biscuits properly done can be very strong, but for a face frame the pocket jig is tough to beat. Fast and easy and strong. I would never consider a pocket screw joint for a location where it could be seen. Biscuits or other joinery are better for that.
    PLesa excuse the tpyos.

    I volunteered to make some of the props for my daughter's play at school. I've been assigned to make five facades for various scenes including a storefront, a dresser, a fireplace, a bank teller, and one other. Been using the pocket jig to quickly construct these one-sided facades in fairly short order. Love it. Well worth the small expense (~$50).

    NICE!

    Geez Walter. A play at school? What happened to cardboard, duct tape, and sharpies?

    That looks like a prop from a school play in a movie.

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    Working on a built in desk/bookshelves in the study. Had to borrow some extra clamps for the glue up of the 12 foot long maple top.

    Top is glued up, sanded, stained and installed. The whole thing came together nicely. Just need to build the bookcases now.
