Only issue with using screws is the thickness of this particle board isn't very wide - less than an inch thick for all the boards. I've had experience with how easy it is to split this type of particle board when trying to use nails or screws. Even the included ones sometimes split the wood, flaking off the outer finish and cracking the particle board. I imagine I would need somewhat thicker screws or nails to work with the T and L brackets - they need to have a head. The nails this thing comes with are practically tacks in thickness - thin little nails with absolutely no head and like an inch long. If I use bigger nails or screws I'm afraid it will start splitting the particle board.
