Very simple project, I know, but this is my first attempt using pocket hole screws. This is just 2” x 10” pine with Minwax Wipe On Clear Gloss Poly. 4 coats, with doing 600 grit sanding after each coat. I put the poly on after putting it together, but almost wish I would have done son, then screwed it together. Hard to say.

Thanks! For those who have used Pocket holes often, I’m assuming you typically hide the holes? Since it wasn’t really necessary on this piece, I didn’t.
