Working with softwood lumber in terms of furniture making items can be a challenge and using wet softwood even more so, wet wood shrinks sometimes warps and bends, frequently cracks and which makes wood joinery a challenge, especially for things like pocket holes or other mechanical fasteners, better solutions are mortise and tenon or larger dowels and sometimes even large loose tenon joinery might work. The way lumber prices are, furniture makers are selecting softwoods more and more, but it may not be the best choice!
