I was working on some cabinets and had tearout of the birch veneer when I
drilled pocket holes for mounting the face frame. These are shop cabinets,
but I am also going to be building "the real thing" soon and don't want any
PH tearout. I am using a new, sharp drill bit - what's going on?
If I put even a thin piece of scrap under the hole jig to back up the veneer
face, it'll change raise the location of the screw hole in the end of the
rail. That doesn't seem right.... Do you think masking tape would work?
's a thought...
Someone must have already had this come up. Comments?
