Pocket Holes - 3 1/2 inch laminated apron

Hi,

I am building a work bench the calls for 3 1/2 inch x 3 1/2 laminated aprons. Article suggests pocket screws to attach aprons to the table top and i want to do this vs battens. I have a Kreg jig, but max stock depth it accommodates is 1 1/2. If i drill a 1 1/2in pocket hole on 3 1/2 stock, the screw won't exit in the center of the laminated stock as illustrated in the below plans. Is that okay? Any recommendations?

Thank you!

Phil

It should not matter, there are enough of them that they will still hold the top in position, which is all they are really doing.

You could have drilled that particular lamination before the glue up with what you have.

You can still drill it now with one of these:

Best of luck with your project.
