Pocket Screw joinery is a quick and easy woodworking joint that comes in handy in many projects. The best way to describe the pocket screw joint is as an enhanced version of the traditional butt joint. Here, a screw is added to the butt joint via a pocket hole drilled into one of the pieces. The screw essentially acts as the clamping force that keeps the butt joint together.
While building your projects, there is always a sense of satisfaction if you manage to use some of your cut-offs from previous projects into your current masterpiece. There is something about using your lumber to the last inch that gives you the sense that you got your money's worth from that lumber purchase.
At times, you will likely also find yourself gazing at your cut-off bin thinking of projects that could benefit from this ever-accumulating stash of remnants.
