About White Oak Tools

White Oak Tools is located in Rochester, MI and manufactures all its products in the local area.  Our product is one that is immediately compared to step drill based pocket hole jigs.  This comparison is natural as they both use pocket screws to join wood.  Our product however is truly innovative and offers woodworkers the ability to create strong and nearly invisible pocket screw joinery unmatched by the competition.

A frequently asked question is, I try to hide my pockets by placing them in areas that are seldom seen, why make them look nice?  To us at White Oak Tools, this is a puzzling question.  Hidden or not, since when do woodworking professional and hobbyists not take steps to avoid predicable tear-out?  And more importantly, why limit an easy to apply joining technique to areas that you hope will never be seen?  For example, save time by using Route-a-Pocket™ Joinery when assembling cabinet doors.  By placing a single low angle deep penetrating pocket screw across a joint made with matched rail and stile cutters, clamps are no longer needed, glue clean up is easier and wide doors gain much needed reinforcement.  Leave the clean-cut professional quality pockets exposed for all to see when the door is opened, or make the joining technology unnoticeable by inserting perfectly matched plugs using the Route-a-Pocket™ Plug Cutter.

It takes less than 30 seconds (including clamping and unclamping) to make a pocket using the Route-a-Pocket™ jig and when completed you’ll have a stronger joint that is easier to make flush (less sanding) and does not need to be hidden.

The Route-a-Pocket™ System is not just a jig for making pocket holes, it also includes the tools and accessories needed for making precision fit plugs that do not alter the original surface of the plug stock and requires no sanding after plug insertion.  Never before could you match the color, figure and grain of the plug to the pocket workpiece with this level of precision. 

So keep an open mind as you watch the videos and use the Interactive Screw Selection Template.  We are confident you will discover new opportunities to use pocket screw joinery.
