Corners to a desk...

Hi, I'm trying to contruct a computer desk out of wood. I've drawn up aplan and have taken all necessary messurements to begin my project. However there is one aspect that worries me. How can I connect two pieces of wood together (for example a leg to the table top) without the use of screws? Or can I use screws and not make them visable in the finished project... Looking for a few suggestions...
More specifically, I am using 1'' - 2'' planks of wood. I want to keep the connection process clean without compromising stuctural integrity. Woodglue comes to mind but is it stong enough?
