The covering boards are replaced first . All of the covering boards were sawn out of one large plank , and then re-sawn so that each side was book matched to the other . All of the individual strips of decking were also sawn out of one large plank for good colour and grain matching .
The decking was edge nailed with stainless steel nails , much like a hardwood floor . The lines are laid out with dividers , and the decking nailed from the outside in . It is pretty easy to get a deck with crooked lines using this method if you don't know what you are doing . After all you are dividing a curved surface into rectangles so the odd lick of a plane off of each strip is sometimes needed . The advantage is a finished deck with no screw holes or plugs.
