I decided to build a shop cabinet last night.
I was debating between pocket screws or dados.
I figured “Kreg jiggin’ it” would be quick and easy, but just like every other time, getting perfectly aligned joints was just an exercise in frustration. I even went out to buy the $30 right-angle clamp.
I’ve read all the tips and tricks to preventing the joint from creeping when tightening the screw, but half of them are at the expense of the efficiency and simplicity that pocket joinery is supposed to provide.
Dado joints would’ve been faster, and the damn cabinet wouldn’t be out of square by 1/8” either.
