An article that I read on another forum (canít seem to re find it) tested Kreg joints with various glued joints and not surprisingly all the glue joints were stronger than the Kreg joints. I have one and use for non load bearing joints but just personally donít feel they are strong enough for long term load bearing.. but thatís just my well aged opinion

What do you consider "load bearing" joints in cabinetry and furniture?

Kreg joints

In my simple mind, any joint that is supporting someone, being leaned on, sit on or pushed on, is load bearing. Shear strength seems to be the main downfall.

Pre-drill the screw holes and they won't split.

Well, I used Kreg screws to attach the 2x10s together at their edges and doing that along with glue made the bench rock-solid. I ended-up attaching the sides and top with construction screws, counter-sunk them and plugged the holes. Turned out pretty nice.
