    Gregg,
    Sorry I just found this message, I don't always log in just to see what's new...so I miss the notices sometimes...THANKS for the response!!

    In my opinion... IF the joint is cut and prepped correctly you SHOULDN'T have to pocket screw BUT IF it makes you more comfortable I personally have NO problem with them....I only use the Kreg system though and IF you set it up as their specs say (course thread screws for softer woods and fine for harder woods) and screw length recommended. Pocket screws have their place, I even use them strategically BUT NOT as a priority/primary jointing system as a lot do BECAUSE they are LAZY!!!!

    Wood putty and filler....IF you can't get them close/tight DON'T do the project....it'll only look cheaply done. I've found very few fillers that didn't stand out like a sore thumb....I'd rather see the gap as to see patched shoddy filler attempts.

    I believe you'll be fine...I can't wait to see this finished!!!

    Hey Tim
    Im not sure you saw my response to that beautiful piece you joined. Awesome. Im hoping mine comes out half as nice. I have a question. Because of the "S" curve of the pieces I am trying to join, I was thinking of using a pocket hole jig from the underside to help secure the pieces along with glue. What are you thoughts on that? The pieces are only 1" so I'm a little concerned about breaking through the top. Also do you have any suggestions for a wood putty/filler for the seams. (is that taboo for a woodworker) I am a novice and an Electrician by trade. Lol. Also I plan to join two pieces then the third then the fourth. Good idea??

    Thank you for your time,

    Gregg

    Choices? I am really blessed to drive a Camry we have a backyard licensed mechanic who does any work on our car which is not much due to the quality of Toyota. However I have a choice whether to go to the Toyota dealership or my mechanic. People have choices and I don't feel that I am hurting Toyota but going to my backyard mechanic.

    Mr. Tim I am in awe of the siding on your house pics. Did you build the house yourself? My wife and I are blessed to be in service for THE KING and want to build our own debt free home. I have cut several drout killed pines and have at least 100 to go. Good solid wood. Any tips or advice on homebuilding. I am leaning toward natural edge siding for the different look. I did a small resale shop my wife and I are opening on Thusrday for our ministry to supply a food pantry we are called to open in His Holy name.
