wood screws

  1. Joinery
    I have been using Drywall screws for joinery for a long time. Only use where they won't be seen, (or in rare cases, counter-bore and then use plug cutter from stock I am working on to match wood grain and color,) and basically just to hold pieces together while glue dries. Down side is that...
  2. General Woodworking Discussion
    If I were to screw and unscrew a wood screw more than once, would it lose strength over time? I'm asking because I have a walnut slab dining table that I plan to assemble, and disassemble on a weekly basis. The steel legs are each attached with (4) multi-purpose 2" wood screws. Thanks! - Danny
