I no doubt over-drove the screws. The clutch on my drill is stiff so I had it set to 8, but it never triggered, I stopped when it “snugged up”

I was using the Kreg brand screws, they happen to be the “weather resistant” kind since I had some left over from making window flower boxes last year.

The matchstick or larger screw size is what I am going to try, headed to the store now to get the shorter screws
