Strength determined by screw direction?

My wife wanted small set of shelves built.  Nothing decorative, just functional.  She said getting 1/6 boards and screwing them together would be fine. No sanding. No staining.  Just cutting ans…Continue

Dad did a lot of wood work and always had a bottle of Elmer's wood glue around. He also always had a can of WD-40 and 3-in-one oil. In the past several years I've become aware of different type oils…Continue

"Jack,  In this application there would not be a huge difference in the strength of your joint between the two ways.  However if you had to choose, i would recommend drilling your pocket hole in the side and going down into the bottom…"

Strength determined by screw direction?

My wife wanted small set of shelves built.  Nothing decorative, just functional.  She said getting 1/6 boards and screwing them together would be fine. No sanding. No staining.  Just cutting ans screwing them together.  I put it together with the two sides sitting on the table and the top shelf was on top of the two sides. There are two other shelves inside the two sides.  Since these were not to be used for anything heavy all I did was drill the holes in the location that would hide the holes…See More

"That does look like a great setup.  The Kreg jigs are great and provide a much better finished product when you want a really nice piece. I'm new to these tools also.  I got the Kreg K4 master kit 2 or 3 months ago. Since then…"

"Here's another thought. The most recent purchase I made was the screw selection circle. I haven't used it yet but I have seen 2 or 3 other charts. One was only good if both pieces of wood were the same size it seemed. The other was a bit…"

"Jack Just a idea. Over here in Australia, and I should think in the US we enclose lattice in timber. On the inside of the frame is a rabbet which is deep enough to allow the lattice to expand and contract. The you fig the frame to the posts. That…"

"Ken and Keith, I like the idea of the lattice hanging on dowels to allow for maximum movement due to heat or cold. But I’m thinking I’ll need to drill holes in the lattice for the dowel. The end of each piece of  lattice should fit…"

Keith replied to Jack Haskins, Jr.'s discussion 'Kreg jig settings for lattice around a deck'
"Jack, just an fyi that the type of lattice you are working with will expand and contract substantially if it is in sunlight and secured tightly. So, if it's installed securely, it will bow during the day. When I install this type of lattice, I…"

"Thanks Ken,   Just went and bought a flush-cut saw at Lowe's.    The lattice will be laid on it's 8' side making the rails approx. 4' tall. I plan on using a 2x4 or maybe a 1x4 along the top, behind the lattice…"

"Ken, that is what I want to do. The 1x4 will cover where two pieces of lattice come together and the screws that hold the lattice to the 4x4. The 4x4's are 8' apart and the lattice is 4'x8'. My goal is not to have any screw holes…"

What's one interesting fact about you, your life, your garage, shop, or home?
13 years in USAF, then worked on computer systems. Retired now. Always liked working with tools. Dad loved it and showed me TONS of stuff. When he retired from the USMC he bought land and had the shell of a new house built. Then he, my brother and I did anything inside that we could. We did hard wood floors, carpet, all molding, electrical wiring (except box), AC ducts, etc. I HATED IT!!! I was 14, brother 13. Now we both can make a long list of how we have saved money in our own homes because of what we learned that one summer. Anyway, now I'm setting up my first home shop. It won't be super nice but it will be extremely functional. Till now I've always dragged my tools outside for larger projects. I's create a makeshift bench with saw horses and 2x4s and have at it. I recently bought a metal workbench that I'll be doing smaller projects on like making knife handles. Think Dremel size projects. I also made a 6' workbench to hold my sander, drill press and stuff like that. I'm finishing that up and believe it or not I used the portable Kreg to drill holes in a 2x4 to put up up a back board that wasn't included in the plans. Normally I'd have drilled for that during assemble buy since it was already put together the portable Kreg made adding that piece SUPER easy. I used the 6" automax clamp to hold the 1x4 in place when screwing the screws in.

My grandson is 5 now and I'm looking forward to him helping me for a few years.

Jack
