BTW if you have a cheap standard pine stud and a premium stud (theyre lighter and looks perfect) handy, try to drive a 1/8-1/4 thick screw in it, somewhere near the edge. I bet you the more expensive one will crack first. this is the main reason i stick to the standard one, they can take alot of stress and I can make strong reliable joints (for built ins and custom seating)

true, but lag bolts are designed to 'claw' into the wood more in order for it to support more weight. do that in a glued joint and it will likely split. they do have metal plates to protect weak sections of a stud (maybe electrical/plumbing) from homeowners i broke a few drill bits on those
