    @bashleigh Oh yeah. Those look really good too. How did you join the planks? Do you have some fancy biscuit joiner or dowel jig or did you use some plates?

    @irene I used a kreg pocket screw jig. Really simple, just helps as a guide to drill a hole diagonally so you can screw and glue the boards together. You can see from the holes the type of angle you need to achieve

    Once the glue dries it’s completely solid. I was really surprised

    @bashleigh I have been putting off picking up a kreg pocket hole jig because they seem expensive in Canada. (between $40 and $200 before tax. )

    Most places I need them I can use dowel then glue/screw. I’m cheap.

    @irene I bought one of these https://ebay.co.uk/itm/...
    I know it’s a UK link but it’ll give you an idea. I’m sure the dowel idea will work too :)
