"1. Insure your cuts are at 90 degrees--- this is necessary for accuracy. 2.  Use a rafter/framing square to check your progress--- before, during and after your tasks at hand. Get a good one.  A thick aluminum one is the way to go. A…"

How to get a frame squared at right angles

Hi I have a basic question about framing. I framed a rectangular table top using 2 X 4. I used pocket holes for the joints. I found that the angles were not perfectly squared after joining all the four sides. Sizes of the opposite were exactly the same. If I loosen the screws the frame is a perfect square, however when I tighten the joints it is not squared. Is there a technique I can use to ensure that I have the frame squared perfectly? See More

"I would glue and clamp.  I would not use pocket hole joinery due to the bit potentially breaking through the groove.  There is also the backside, how strong is the joint going to be when the screw diameter is almost the same as the tongue…"

Joining tongue and groove oak

Greetings - I have unused 3.5 inch wide tongue and groove oak wood. I want to join these together to make a wide board so that I can make a table top out of it. I can easily glue and clamp them, however not sure if that is the right way. Not sure if I can use pocket holes to hold adjacent pieces together. Can some one please suggest the best way to go about doing this?  See More
