Outdoor framing hardware and fasteners
Hidden clips and rails
You can install decking these days without any visible fasteners. Deck clips, recessed fasteners, and metal rails all attach the decking to the joists, either between or under the decking.
Many carpentry jobs call for adhesives, either as the primary or secondary fastener. Purchase several tubes of construction adhesive to help keep miters from separating. Two-part epoxy in syringes is self-mixing. You'll need it to anchor threaded studs in post footings.
