New to woodworking and I am trying to get into it as a hobby while fixing up stuff around the house.
In the above image link (Desk fix), I'm trying to fix this desk. It needs joints for the legs because it's unsturdy. I'm trying to create holes in the wood to so the screws can secure the joints, but I didn't realize how thick the wood was. Perhaps this is polywood. How do I get these screws in. Is my 20v electric drill not the right tool for this?
If I put a lot of weight on the electric drill, the hole is just a circle and not in the shape of the screw.
Edit: So if I put a lot of weight on it it makes a hole but it has no shape of the screw. It's just a like a cylinder and the screw goes in and out easily but isn't secure. It was burning smell.
Edit: Changed the direction of the electric drill and it works now. Feel like a dumbass!
