So my wife and I are expecting our first child this year and I’m trying to get as many projects around the house done before then. We have an upstairs patio that we use quite a bit, but I noticed that some of the fence posts are loose and I’m just afraid the kiddo is going to lean on one of those and fall, so I hap-hazardly just went to town screwing them in with pocket holes. I understand some woodworking purists turn their noses up to pocket holes, but all I want to know is “does this look ok?” or should I have tried to hide the pocket holes by drilling from the bottom side? If this is going to look awful, what can I do to mask it?
This is how they’ll look once they’re painted
Any and all opinions are welcome- Thanks!
