    Nice work, Tom.
    Can you use pocket screw joinery with Starboard?

    I have never tried but I do not see why not.
    You are talking about those angled screw jigs , correct?

    Yes Tom,
    I use this method for a lot of my cabinetry. I now have an outdoor kitchen project to do, and I am not sure of using pocket screws, as it relates to expansion/contraction.
    Any info on this matter would be appreciated!
    Thank you,

    Starboard and Colorcore both have a pretty high thermal expansion rate.
    When I use it outdoors I always try to use light colors.
    The pit cart topper is 5' long and probably grows 1/8" in length in the hot sun.
    I have always used counter sunk screws and never have a problem at the joints.
    Feel free to call me if I can be of help.

    The cart itself was bought from a company. I can get their name but I believe it was around $1200.
    It is all aluminum and VERY light.
    It uses Racing Kart wheels and tires.

    I just made the topper for it.
