My new toy

The Pocket Hole Jig - another of those clever devices designed to help turn the person who can barely hammer a nail in straight into a skilled cabinet-maker!
This nifty little item is a jig that enables you to drill holes at a shallow angle into pieces of wood which you can then 'secret screw' them into other bits of wood using special screws. It's ideal for fixing cabinet sides to bulkheads, fixing frames and a dozen other things.
It's impossible to explain simply so have a look at this little video where an American with bad haircut and glasses explains exactly how it's used to the accompaniment of irritating background music.
