"My 2 cents... I would not give up on a nice and thick layer of a wood glue in the joint... This with 2 1/2 " screws will make that joint stronger than the wood itself. "

1x6 into a 4x4?

Perhaps this question has already been asked somewhere on this forum but I wasnt able to find it after an hour or so of searching. Is there a recommended length of Kreg screw to use when combining a 1x6 into a 4x4 post. I have seen a few conversion charts and what not on the page but nothing goes up to a 4x4 post. Building a dinning room table and dont want anything coming out after I deliver it to a friend. See More
