The first wood project I did was to renew the rails on my deck. I put screws down from the top – Ice got into the tiny cracks from the screws and expanded the cracks, freeze by freeze two years later my project was worthless, the ice had destroyed the rails.
On this project I put pocket holes underneath the rail, put the screws from underneath where ice cannot collect – Four years later not ONE crack on the top rails! All the fence boards were edge jointed with a floor board joint – no see through fence, happy wife happy life.
