Great for nice country furniture build
Posted October 28, 2014
As a novice slowly building skills, my latest project was a country style hutch for an existing dining room sideboard. The plans called for a back that's constructed of slats and splines with the slats screwed into the top and bottom rails. As these will be in the back, no one will see them. Which is actually too bad as the screws look really nice. I decided to try to use some 'fancy' screws and see what would happen. These things went in super smoothly. (I did use a tapered countersink hole first.) I also used a tip I saw from somewhere - on here or a forum - to finish the screws with the square head/slot pointing upward; that is, in a diamond orientation. The result is a classy kind of finished feel. It's subtle and not something most would consciously notice. But the symmetry does make a difference. Would definitely use these again for other products when style calls for them and they'd be exposed to view.
Good All Around General Purpose Screws

Really good value for your money. There IS a difference in quality when it comes to wood screws. These screws are very high quality and an excellent value for the money spent.
Great for cabinets installation

Last week I was installing some kitchen cabinets and to attach cabinets to each other, I ordered #8 2 1/2" finish trim screws. Those screws worked like magic, I predrilled a 1/16 pilot hole and with the square head, those screws went right in like nothing... the best, the small profile of the head you don't really need to fill them, but me being a neat freak, I used some Fastcap and it disappeared like it was never there.
