Hi

The screws, which were invisible before, start half way into the
plank and then screw into the base.* How on earth is that done?

You want a plug cutter, you do. Get a good one, about £15-£20, not
some £9.99 crappy set of four. Don't use it on gritty boards or it
will become k-nackered.


Yup that will give a fairly close match if you cut the plugs from
similar wood and take the time to match the grain.

You might be able to get away with some ready made tapered plugs, and
a 10mm lip'n'spur bit to part drill the start of the hole.


Can't see any average jobbing builder bothering to hide deck
screws with plugs though


....and this is why we DIY :-)
