"You'll be able to tell.  Like Jay said, that end grain will soak it up like a sponge.  Depending on wood species and how dry it is, it will either get tacky or the glue will simply disappear and start to change color like it is…"

Jay Boutwell replied to Justin's discussion 'Advice needed! Glue, clamp, and let dry before pocket screw?'
"Justin, when the glue becomes tacky it will have soaked into the wood grains enough that you will have a good bite with the glue.  Then add some more and attach the two mating surfaces.  End grain in wood is like straws and…"

"Ok, I am planning on doing a mixture of what you guys suggested.  I will follow up with how it turns out, this time with actual pictures!  One question, how long should I let the wood glue soak in for (using Titebond III)?"

Russ Haynes replied to Justin's discussion 'Advice needed! Glue, clamp, and let dry before pocket screw?'
"Absolutely follow Jay's advice about gluing the end grain twice. I agree that the pocket screw should be all the clamping pressure you need. But if you want more, you can take one of your cut offs and glue it to the leg facing the other…"

"Hi Justin, What Don is saying is true as that is the advantage of the Kreg screw technology.  In looking at your example it would appear to me that you are going to have some end grain in the glue joint.  What I would do is apply a coat of…"

Don Foley replied to Justin's discussion 'Advice needed! Glue, clamp and let dry before Pocket Screw?'
"Justin, What you're proposing sounds like it will work, but one of the joys of pocket hole joinery for me has been allowing the screws to hold the pieces together while the glue dries, allowing assembly to move forward quickly.  In that…"

Hi Justin,

I am on the Kreg listserv and I live in Brunswick, OH, about 30 miles south of Cleveland.  Where in Ohio are you located?  I am also interested in remodeling but am just developing my skills.  I've done some trim carpentry and drywall around the house as a way to learn.  - Jim Werner
