Default How to hide screws in a wooden deck?

Hi

We are replacing some decking and have the boards delivered. The previous
deck was installed by the builder's chippie about 12 years ago. We have
started taking the old boards off. The screws, which were invisible
before, start half way into the plank and then screw into the base. How
on earth is that done?

Thanks
Suzanne


In my experience decking planks are pretty soft and if a screw is well
driven in below the surface, the wood fibres will spring back to almost
totally conceal the screw head.
