Use 5/8” long screws, size 8 as a minimum, 10 would be better. Make a drill stop from tape on your drill bit so you don t drill through the top.

Good idea. I had seen somone make a drill stop with plastic or something. Didn’t ecen think to use tape. :-P

I knw these are silly noob questions, but do you think using screws is sufficient for this purpose as a coffee table? Straight through the legs into the board? Assuming i use a washer and the legs are typical harpin legs (a thin base plate with screw holes) would the screw length be the same recommendation?
