What is "Pocket hole" - Definition & Explanation

A hole, drilled into wood at an angle to hold a screw that will then join and reinforce joints. Pocket holes often have a special jig to make them. But you can make them by careful drilling or even a sharp chisel carving out a tetrahedral chip. Very useful for corner blocks or to reinforce frame joints that are not convenient or possible to take apart.
