Hello Everyone - Newbie looking for some best practice or suggestions on attaching a 2x6 cedar rail to a 4x4 Cedar post on my deck. I'm basically replacing the existing footprint of the deck and would prefer not to use a metal bracket. Currently the rails are toe-nailed into the post - My concern is that I'm going to split the ends with my framing-nailer. I recently caught a youtube where someone used screws and identified the location of the screw on the rails prior to installing the rail.... I'm just wondering if there are any tips & tricks someone might be able to share. Appreciate any suggestions.
