You are better off to predrill if you can, the wood is very hard and is prone to splitting. 

Hi Justin,

Thanks, I know that and thinking about it I don't think I want to try the screws on this one. 

Thanks Joe

To help with edge alignment, I have alternated biscuits with pocket screws, and then clamps are not required.

Jatoba is gorgeous. I was just looking at some pieces today which were donated to the used material warehouse.
