Difficulty working with particle board shelving from Lowe's

Also - it there is a concern - this stuff is awesome!!

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
