I bought a box of 6-inch and a box of 8-inch screws to build some heavy-duty benches for the fire pit area I'm constructing--using 6" x 6" and 4" x 6" pressure-treated lumber. Using the Timberlok screws saved me A LOT of time and energy over my initial plan to use lag screws to attach the pieces together. Using lag screws, I'd have to pre-drill all the holes to depth and then ratchet them in. With the Timberlok screws, I just had to use the bit included with each box to screw them in (after countersinking for the screw heads). Despite the thickness and density of the pressure-treated wood, the Timberlok screws went in pretty easily. I used the 8-inch screws to attach the 4" x 6"s to the 6" x 6"s (a triangle of three at each end) and the 6-inch screws to attach the 4" x 6"s to each other (two at each end and two in the middle). Then I capped the tops of the benches with deck boards. I attached each of the 6" x 6" bases together with Heavy Duty Liquid Nail and two 10" galvanized spikes--although I could've easily used 8-inch Timberlok screws to make the connections. (I didn't happen on the Timberlok screws until the bases were already done.) I was able to assemble all four benches on a Sunday afternoon--and they are very solid and sturdy--and seriously heavy. Bench is four-feet wide; seat is one-foot deep and 20-inches high; base is two-feet deep.

work great on thick wood I used these screws to build wood and rigid plastic sand barrier walls on top of an existing seawall and the screws got very tight in the old wood.
