RWW 142: 18th Century Pocket Holes
Pocket holes are not a 20th Century invention. Cabinetmakers and joiners were using them even 300 or more years ago. In this episode I take a recently restored combination gimlet bit and show how to make a pocket hole by hand in one pass. It is also a useful bit for drilling pilot hole and countersink all at once just by drilling normally 90° to the wood’s surface.
