Got my 1" MDF sheet today at the local lumber shop. Great store, had a 20% off coupon and got a 4x8 sheet for 40$ I know the basics like clamp the glue for a good time, dont be afraid to lose too much glue, that kinda stuff. Just was going to ask people for certain strategies they use when constructing boxes. What type of screws? Nails? Wood glue? Adhesive?

Ill post pics tomorow guys. Thanks alot

wood glue, wood glue, wood glue. MDF self-tapping screws are handy as well. Also, the simplest and most important: measure twice, cut once.

1-5/8 coarse thread sheetrock screws. Titebond II. I wouldn't use nails vibration can back them out.countersink and predrill your holes. Other than that you should be good. oh and post pics.

i normally use 1-5/8's drywall screws, with a 3/32 predrill bit and countersink....don't for get to brace the box...and titebond II is the best glue that i've used..
