I've just been looking at the Kreg Deck jig being advertised on Lee
I was wondering about fastening deck boards as demonstrated by this
jig. For those of you experienced with building decks, would the
screws need to be inserted on both sides of a deck board, (assuming
there's just enough room for screws to be inserted on a 45 degree
angle both edges) or just on one edge? And if it is just one edge for
fastening down a deck board, wouldn't there be a tendency for the
opposite unfastened edge to rise or perhaps cup over time?
This web page.
Has a video showing installing screws on the inside of the deck board,
at about the 27 second mark, as well as the outside. Also has a link
to the printed guide included with the jig, which shows the screws
installed on both sides.
