Since you are planning to put this outside, use a waterproof glue like Titebond III. The screw or nails just hold thing together until the glue dries. Modern glues, when used properly, are stronger than the wood.

I had made some Adirondack chairs out of Jarrah a few years ago. We had a severe wind storm here a few weeks back that blew one of those chairs across the yard and into the fence about 50’ away. The joint that broke was glued and screwed together. The screws pulled out without much damage, but the glue ripped pieces of the other board out.
