Make sure you use wood glue. and i found it best to use a staple gun with 1 1/4" staples, cause the wood doesnt split as easy. but if screws are all you got....then use them but be careful not to split the wood

Drill pilot holes and countersink the heads of the screws, always works fine for me. But yes, USE WOOD GLUE!!

Anything that will make a very very strong + airtight bond is fine.
