Holding pocket hole joinery components on edge has always been an issue, therefore a new jig. And here is mine. I’ve used Melamine because glue won’t stick to it, and I had everything in my scrap bins.

As shown, I’ve taken advantage of a groove already milled on the back by adding a cleat so it would ‘hook’ to the workbench edge or any work surfaces.

Two square perpendicular fences are required, leaving a 2” gap between for the stock. Note that a chamfer or a rabbet will capture any dust that may interfere. The jig can also be used with flat stock instead of using typical face clamps.

For more photos and all construction details, please take a quick look at this page of my blog.

Thanks for looking.

Very smart, as usual. I came up with something simillar when joining large and long boards with screews – to hold them in place while making pilot holes and screw them.

Less is plenty.
Fine detail with the sandpaper grip.
