schedules in building code give these values for specific applications:

size,
#,

parallel to grain (end grain)

7

screw advantage:

better holding,
removal,
replacement.

no.0-24

9

typ screw length

¼”–5”

lead holes prevetn

splitting

11

lag screw:

head like a bolt, used w washer.

12

¼”–1”ø,
½”–6” length.

13

washer under bolt head provides:

prevent crushing wood, distribute load.

14

split rings and shear plates purpose:

can transfer larger loads than bolt/screws alone.
