I'm sort of baffled by the Kreg pocket screw joint thing... I was watching an episode of American Woodshop where they were putting together a kitchen cabinet. I just went and found the episode, and my memory was right: On a 24" wide cabinet 12" deep, they used six screws on each side to hold the bottom to the sides, and ten screws to hold the bottom to the back. That's close to one screw every two inches, even on the longer side!

I found myself thinking "Are pocket screws really that weak? And if so, why would I use them?"
