    real wood glue is pretty much the only way to go in my mind.

    oh, and stay at least 2" from the edges of the box when putting in screws, and always pre drill to avoid splits

    Re: supplies for build tommorrow!

    you dont need to predrill it is a waste of time... if you use these screws. I found thease at home depot a while back. and have never looked back.

    Sprax screws made for MDF. you WILL NOT split the wood. I have never split any yet, nor had to predrill. Saves me LOTS of time




    Sprax MDF/Edge Arrow Point Partial Thread Screw - specifically engineered for MDF. No pre-drilling necessary. Slender head with the ribbed underside easily countersinks into the material. Silver zinc finish. These fasteners are currently being changed by Spax from pozidrive to torx drive. The appropriate drive bit (mfg by Festool / Wiha) is included by Ultimate Garage with the sale of each box of screws.

    I use 1 1/2" and never had a split. I guess 2" is more certain to not split

    a countersink bit is nice to have as well.

    Re: supplies for build tommorrow!

    umm IDK, I only found them at Home Depot. I tried to google them real quick but didnt find anything. They come in a green box, and the ones that I have have a hex head on them, But they supply the bit for it.

    And for size I use 1 1/2" and have had no problems... and as far as glue I use titebond II as well.
