So I’m working on this little clock from a plan in a magazine.
It has a 1/2” sub-base and sub-top which would attach the bottom and top.
In the plan, it calls for for countersunk holes to do the attaching.
So, I did that, and drove the screws. Right through the top. Nice.
So then I’m thinking, “Were screws really needed here? Wouldn’t glue be plenty? I’m looking at about 15 square inches of glue area! Why bother with setting up the holes, countersinking them, pilot-holing the attaching piece and then turning screws in a difficult spot?”
Jeez, couldn’t I just have glued the darn thing, and saved A LOT of time?!
What do you guys think?!
-- Have a blessed day!
