Dylanc, I’m kind in the same boat as you. I’m new to wood working and the one project I’ve posted on here I did with loose tenons. I did it with router and no jig, just measured and cut. Those jig the guys are showing and are talking about would make things so much simpler. The thing I did learn from doing it myself is that it’s really not hard at all. They are simple enough to do, so do worry about it. I don’t have the years of experience these others guys do I’m betting but I can tell these guys are right on with what they are telling you.
If you want to go with the pocket screws you talked about look at Kreg jigs. This is a great fast jig, I have one and they have nothing but good reviews about them. I researched it a lot before I bought one.
If you want to spend a lot more on a tool/ system that does it all there’s the festool domino (and please no comments about how expensive festools are). It is NOT cheap but I’ve heard amazing how good it works.

Again good luck and thanks to you all for sharing as I am still learning about this too!
