Wood – Type of screw / fastener should one use to attach veneer covered particle board bookcases together


I have 8 Ikea Billy bookcases and I would like to attach them together to make the seam betwen them as narrow as possible.

What sort of screw or fastener is appropriate for particle board?

Best Answer

I am not a big fan of screw threads in particle board.

I would use connecting bolts and caps, which are often included in DIY furniture.
