I am making a router table. I will be using pocket screws to assemble the sides (4 boards 5 inches wide). The case will have a shelf attached in the middle to each side. My question is can I use pocket screws located on the inside of the sides to directly attach the top and bottom of the table. This would end up looking like simple bookshelf. Will this joint be srong enough with the top and bottom attached? Would you recommend I use a frame of some sort for additional stength? Thank you. This is my first project:-)
