To connect oak, use the standard glue-and-screw method, however, countersink the hole so the screw head will be set beneath the surface about 1/8-1/4".  Hammer in an oak plug (cut them with plug cutters out of a scrap piece of oak, or cut an oak dowel and taper the sides), saw it close to the surface, and sand flush.
