Can anyone give me some guidelines for a maximum distance between 2 pocket screws across the grain?
I’m building a somewhat unusual frame of 3/4 inch yellow poplar and I plan to space the screw pairs in the stiles by 1 3/4 inches. This is for a bench cabinet in my shop which will go through a humidity change during the year between 40 and 60 percent. The wood will be well varnished. Will the wood move enough to crack?
I would appreciate any advice on this.
Thanks very much.
