Also watch how much you tighten the screws as the material will try to rotate with the scew and when you put in the next screw the material will bow along it s length; place a straight edge along the length to watch for bowing.

That’s great advice, I already learned this the hard way. Actually, it seems like that’s how I’m learning everything about woodworking :).

I do not have a drill press, which makes all of this more difficult. I think the easiest approach (for next time) might have been William NG’s drill from the top approach.

Counterbore and pan heads. I actually think that the material is too thin and warped at this point for me to use it, but that is good info. Thanks!
