I'm building cabinets and I want to join 2 - 3/4" panels at a 45° angle. I have cut the panels at 22 1/2° and they line up nicely. I'm concerned that the screws will penetrate the far side.
Would a 1" screw be adequate?
When I set-up to drill, what thickness should I set the jig for?
I've added 2 photos of the subject joint.
I can use biscuits but I had hoped to do this project using Kreg pocket holes as much as possible.
Dont think it can work..........anyone?
maybe a Locking Miter Bit for your Router.

Use TEST pieces no matter what you do.
Lock miter is always going to be your strongest joint,but it can only be used for a 45° / 90° angle.you may want to try making a splined joint,a good example is fig. F in the link I sent you ( http://www.woodworkingjointery.com/page11.htm ) ,make your angled cuts,then make a jig that will you allow you to spline cut with the table saw and join the pieces with a milled to thickness and width spline.when glued it will be as strong as any mechanical fastener.
