Ouch Will,  I have done it too.  Your not alone
yep been there done that with a cove moulding bit- you should have seen the sparks that came out when the bit hit the screw!
Working with 3/4 I adjusted the jig in between 3/4 and 1/2  to prevent the screw from going in to deep. I also used glue to make up for the strength. This is the only thing i can think of  other then not using pocket holes for this application. What did you guy's do  for this dilemma?   Thanks

Hmmm Kreg 1 router 0

I don't use screws anywhere near I think I will be routing. Since you glued it you could have removed the screws before routing although this would have left a hole to patch.

Bottom line - bummer

For edge trimming/banding, that would get rounded, or the like, I'd go with biscuit joints or a splined joinery and glued---

without any screws, brads or nails.

 

In edge banding, there are times, when one cannot get a ''closed'' tight fitting joint, so as to get an almost seamless appearance.  To accomplish the feature, the surfaces would need to be super-straight and smooth, otherwise there'll be slight gaps, or hair-line cracks, which will need to be filled and finished---

tough task for many to accomplish.

 

Screws may not draw the joints tight enough, to achieve a closed/tight fitted seam.

this is how i have done rounded corners with a face frame...using a tenon on the back of the front stile

and a groove in the edge of the side panel.  Glue the panels together, then rout the large radius on the corner.

always works well and is strong...mandodad

that is great choice

Looks like kind of a complicated joint. Is that a loose tenon or spline? Seems it would need to run the entire height of the face frame.

It is not really hard to make, basically three cuts on the tablesaw.  (see pic) I have also done it as a spline by cutting the groove in both parts and gluing a spline or biscuits in the groove.  I really don't care for biscuits unless they are smothered in gravy...mandodad

Hmm, never would have thought of that, I just rabbet the face frame into the side panel.

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

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…
