as said, what do you box builders use to screw the box together?

i got my wood glue sitting here, but do you use wood screw or nails or what?

and how long should they be?

Coarse thread drywall screws.
Just make shure they are long enough to go through 3/4" and then some.
I forgot the size, dont have a box to look at

Please simplify your life and get a brad nailer. I use 16 gauge 1 1/2" brad nails in my air nailer.

But then he needs a compressor, and all that good ****, but that just opens the possibility's. :up2somet: I got one :p: .

But as for the length of the coarse drywall screws, 1-5/8" work BEAUTIFULLY!
