Woodworking - first push, glue, then screw

There are a myriad of applications for this simple rule, e.g. in the construction of simple wooden things (boxes, shelves, frames). Anyone who wants / can save dowels or cones, glues the butt of the two wooden parts together bluntly.

But you need the appropriate constraints. Very good here are the proven Klemmsia Exenter ferrules or their various successors. You can create them so that angles and fits are exactly right. Then wait a little while for the glue to put on.

The connected wooden parts are now well fixed and can be screwed on precisely afterwards. Then pre-drill something and use the countersink, depending on the head of the screw. Works perfect.
