Re: the toilet ring
Mine is in a “borrowed” Tupperware container. (she’s got so many, she’ll never know).
When doing a job with screws, I just stick a bunch in the ring. Keeps them handy, off the bench and lubricated.

David’s suggestion for screws is right on! If the chairs are for outdoor use especially.

Another good screw is ””Timber Locks””: But, I think 6” is the shortest. I’ve used them up to 10”. They have heads that require a socket type driver, like metal roofing screws. Threads up about 1/3 and then, a smooth shank. Great for timbers.
