I’m hoping this is the right fourm to post this. I am building some cabinents for my shop and am going to be using OSB since It’s cheap and available. I am thinking of using my pocket hole jig and screws to secure everything together. My question is, will the OSB hold the screw or simply fall apart? Any other ideas are welcome… thanks for the help.

Maybe use pine as back rail and cleat material and that’ll help
as well.

I’ve never used pocket hole jigs for this type of application because
of the concerns you stated.

I’d use joinery, dados and rabbets, with pine or other type of lumber
for support.

Have your say...
