Lap Joints • When the mating parts are the same thickness, the lap should be onehalf the stock thickness.
When nailing near the end of a board, drill pilot holes to prevent the stock from splitting. The pilot hole diameter should be about 75 percent of the nail diameter and bored to a depth of about two-thirds the nail length. Screw Joints • About two-thirds of the screw (or the entire thread length) should enter the mating piece. • When both parts are about the same thickness, the screw length should be 1 ⁄ 8" to 1 ⁄ 4" less than the combined thicknesses of the parts. Example: Use a 15 ⁄ 8"-long screw when joining a 3 ⁄ 4"-thick piece to a 1"-thick piece.
