Pocket holes are supposed to make woodworking EASY.

Then why are they so confusing?!!!



An easy-to-understand, step-by-step program to help you master your pocket hole jig, build stronger joints, and gain the confidence you need to build #allthethings.  


Pocket Hole Ninja was exactly what I needed, and it went beyond my expectations. In my opinion, this is the first course any newbie like me should take. The modules flowed intuitively, going from the basics to the more advanced in a way that takes you comfortably along. Anika's presentation style is casual, charming, and down-to-earth but professional and instructive. The course is clearly well thought out and organized. This is a must-see course for anyone just starting off on the wonderful journey and experience of woodworking.

Pocket Hole Ninja is for ...

  • Aspiring & beginner woodworkers who are just starting out
  • Frustrated woodworkers who keep watching tutorials, deciphering that user manual, and starting from scratch (again), only to have weak pocket hole joints over and over again
  • Confused woodworkers who feel intimidated by all the settings on the jig
  • Guilty woodworkers whose Kreg jig is collecting dust in a corner of your workshop

In 6 bite-sized modules, Pocket Hole Ninja will get you grounded in the basics, walk you through how to drill pocket holes with four different models of jigs, and show you how to make the #1 beginner-friendly joint. 

You’ll walk away with all the details and inspiration you need to achieve success EVERY TIME.

I've already finished my first project!

Anika is an excellent teacher, and I appreciate being able to go through this course. I've had my jig for well over a year but in just a couple of hours going through the course learned more than I was ever able to grasp by Kreg written instruction and videos.

Nice to meet you! I'm Anika

I use simple techniques and minimal tools to help aspiring DIYers like you make professional-looking projects, even if you’re just starting out.

As a self-taught woodworker with a gift for teaching, I am here to tell you—

Woodworking does not have to be overwhelming, complicated, or expensive. In fact, you can fill an entire home with original pieces just by mastering the features & functions of your power tools and learning a few foundational woodworking techniques.

My very first tool (after a power drill) was the Kreg Jig—and I have been hooked ever since! 

After using it for over 11 years, building MANY pieces with it, and being a Kreg partner, I love building with pocket holes. But I know it can be hard to get the hang of them at first, so I created this step-by-step video course to help you!

I want you to be able to look at a project and think to yourself, "I can make that!"


"This was great for newbie woodworkers. It was really helpful that you had several different Kreg Jig models and were able to demonstrate how to use them."

- Nancy W.

"I wish I had found this course sooner and not wasted all these months trying to find tutorials online. You answered all my questions. I love your teaching style. Thank you!!"
