Muddler,

I wouldn’t use Gorilla Glue for this application. Use TiteBond III for it’s waterproofness. Time and time again the poly glues have not held as tight as the yellow glues. My woodworking guild had a presenter that used to work for Wood Magazine, and he had performed tests on the different types of glues. When a yellow glue breaks, it takes wood with it meaning that it actually bonds to the wood fibers in the joints. The poly glues, like Gorilla glue, separated at less pressures and never took any wood with it.

Also, what pocket screws did you use? Kreg? You should also make sure you’re using the coarse screws instead of the thin threaded screws for pine.

You might also be safer using bolts with the glue if you can.
