Stair Treads

I have heard that the Kreg joinery can be used to fasten stair treads to the stringers. Has anyone tried this?  The stringers I am working with are 2X pine and the treads are oak.  The longest fine threaded Kreg screws are 1 1/2 inch long. Will this work?See More

Glenn,
A 2 1/2" screw used in a 2x (approx 1 1/2" thick) with the jig set at 1 1/2 will extend approx 1 1/8 into the other wood. Set the jig for 1 1/2 thick and experiment with the depth collar until you get the penetration you want. You can also set the jig for 3/4, 1, or 11/4and see what the penetration would be with the 11/2 fine screws that you have. The screw will not emerge from the center of the stringer but that should not be a problem in your application.
Hope that helps. Off to the depot and lowes.
Ken

Festool Domino 500

The first thing I will do is set price aside and focus on the tool and why I bought the Domino. 

      I have orders for a few dining tables and chairs.  I have made one prototype chair, while I have all the tools to make angled…
