8 ways to make end-to-end joints that hold
Here's another easy method to fasten butt joints in a hurry. To install pocket-hole screws, drill an angled hole through one workpiece and into another. A screw inserted into the hole pulls the pieces together, as shown at right. Workpieces should be at least 1/2" thick (using 1" screws), and you can attach parts 1 1/2" or thicker using 2 5/8" screws.
