Working with wood I would like to attach the top to the sides without exposing the screws. I realize I can angle the screw in and would like this countered sunk. How do I pull this off, what kinda of drill bit (S), etc.?When you angle from the inside (unexposed) the bit slips and the head of the screw isn't sunk.
I've had a little success by starting the hole with a punch. Then use a very small drill bit to make the initial hole at the right angle -- then follow with successively larger drill bits until you get the size hole you want.
Professional woodworkers use a special tool to do this and i cannot think of what it is called i think it is called pocket joinery. It's purpose is to join stiles in cabinetry. I think it is the type of joint you are lookink for, and it can be done using a jig and a router. Although professional machines are available. I really don't know much about it but maybe you can do a search for pocket joinery jig and find some information on details of this procedure. Sorry i can't help more but woodworking is just a hobby of mine and i have only just started it. As you can tell by my user name i am an electrician which i know much more about than woodworking.
