Redrilling holes in decks
« on: June 30, 2018, 06:51:02 AM »
I have a couple decks I mostly like the shape of but want the tail and hose holes about an inch closer to where the tail/nose starts to angle. Has anyone had any problems with boards breaking easier when they re-drill holes? Iím planning on just filling the okd ones with wood putty/filler and figure that should work fine but I just figured I would see if any of you have any input.

Thanks!

Cool, thanks! I remember some of the older decks (late 80ís, early 90ís) being double drilled like that but havenít seen newer, narrower decks like that around so I wasnít sure if it was a thing or not. :)

Don't think filling the holes will add any strength, maybe just make it look better aesthetically.

use wood glue to fill in the holes
