Basic Construction

The design for the construction of the base was completely inspired by this youtube video. The guy that does that video series likes making simple stuff from simple materials (mostly 2x4's), and loves using pocket screws. I've certainly seen pocket joints all my life, so how is it that I hadn't heard of a pocket screw jig before this? They're pretty much Dog's gift to quick sturdy construction, as far as I can tell. There's no way this would have come out as nicely if I hadn't got myself one.
