Well...I think screws are stronger than nails...But I think a good quality wood glue is stronger than either, and the most important component of assembly!Ready to assemble my deep NUC body along with other ten frame boxes. Comes with nails but was thinking of using wood screws. Seems like it would be more secure in the long run. What has been your experience?
I use Titebond III, a lot of folks will tell you Titebond II is sufficient, and they're "probably" right, but I like a little over-engineering! ...I finish it of with pneumatic staples.
If you are going to use glue, I think nails are more than sufficient...If you're not going to use glue, I think screws is the better choice, but still don't think it will match up to basically any reasonable fastener used in conjunction with a quality glue....But understand, as with EVERYTHING in Beekeeping, opinions do vary!
