Ultimate Deck Build 2015: Installing Cumaru Skirtboards and Decking
Learn the process for handling and attaching this dense exotic hardwood decking.
Installing Cumaru Skirtboards and Decking: Brazilian teak, commonly referred to as Cumaru, is a dense, beautiful, tropical hardwood. On this deck, we’ll be using Cumaru for the skirt that hides the framing and underside of the deck, as well as for the picture frame deck border and main field of the deck. We’ll cover the techniques for cutting, drilling, and fastening the decking, with a special focus on working with hidden fasteners that work with our grooved planks, as well as a method for concealing surface holes with matching wood plugs.Read the related articles:
