And don't tell anyone, pocket screw joints. :yes:


Just kidding.
Seriously though, we need to remember the intended use of the item being built. If its fine furniture, go all out and use the all wood with glue method of joinery and assembly. But for a utilitarian piece, there is no shame in using modern technology, aka the screw :laughing:

The corner block with screws, even from the underside so they wont show is a good thing in my opinion. Another option is to use a lock rabbet, basically a long tongue and groove. The corner braces are a must as they prevent all that racking force from concentrating on the narrow joint. :thumbsup:
