I received my THT plans but there was no materials list to speak of. Is there an actual materials list somewhere that I am missing?

I know somone had a real good thread with updated materials list.


But for consumables, basically;

wood, screws, PL or Liquid Nails, binding posts or terminal cup, gasket.

Thanks guys. Anybody here used an air nailer instead of screws? I have the air tools and it would be a lot faster and make for a cleaner finished product. I would imagine with the adhesive it would be plenty strong as well.

5-6 tubes of PL construction adhesive

Three should be sufficient.

I use 18 ga brads for all my builds except for the second side, which needs a few screws to pull it tight. It's critical to use clamps and guideboards to pull the joints tight and true and then use the brad shooter to secure the joint.

I did for some pieces but screwed for most of it. Several guys have nailed theres so go for it.

True. Come to think of it, I only used about 3.5 tubes. And that was gobbing it on

Yes, I used brads instead of screws.


I did this with the intention of easier finishing options.
