I'm a 60 yr old lady who loves to make things. I have taken 8 week woodworking night classes a few times now.
I built a pine coat rack with cubie for gloves, and a jelly cabinet I can lock from oak.

I tend to create projects at least double my skill level, so I spend lots of time double & triple checking measurements and plans.

Currently making a bathroom, 5 sided corner sink base out of maple & peruvian walnut strips. Doing it alone an hour from home at woodshop classroom in school I work for. No kids there in summer. Sure wouldn't mind a helping hand or advice putting it together in Manchester.

First time making pocket holes and having trouble attaching the face frame at a 45 degree angle into maple. Sliding all around & bouncing. I cleaned off all glue & left.

I found a tip online to make a jig with a 45 angle cut into it and use that to clamp. I will try that & 4 clamps.

Will I need to predrill my maple faceframe? Or simply put pocket screws straight into it after its clamped?
Guess I will try it dry, then use glue & do it again.

Glad to find this website to get ideas & solve problems.

My dad taught me the soap screw trick many years ago & I taught it to my 23 yr old son recently fixing my storm door frame with 3" screws that broke on him twice. He thought I was nuts when I said "roll them in a bar of soap". My other son said, "Bro- just go do it." Nice to be a lil smarter than your kids now & then!
