Installing Brazilian Koa Wood Plugs

This method of Brazilian Koa wood decking installation involves screwing the S4S E4E (surface 4 sides / eased 4 edges) deck boards directly into the joists, and then hiding the screw holes with wood plugs, thus preserving the natural exotic beauty of your deck.

1.   Countersink 3/8" holes into face of deck boards.

2.   Predrill 1/8" pilot holes completely through the deck boards.

3.   Screw the deck boards down with stainless steel screws.

4.   Glue Brazilian Koa wood plugs into the holes with waterproof glue (i.e. Epoxy, Gorilla Glue, etc.).

5.   Knock off plug tops with a chisel.

6.   Sand smooth with 80 grit sandpaper (a round orbit sander works great).
