How to Hide Screwheads on Stair Treads and Other Wood Surfaces
Q: I'd like to screw down the oak treads on a staircase I'm building, but I don't want to see the screwheads. What's the best way to hide them? —William Mazzara, Milford, Mich. A: I'd cover each one with a wood plug. You want plugs made of oak, to match the tread, with tapered sides and the grain running across the face.
