A DIY Enthusiast Shows An Easy Way To Completely Hide Wooden Screws

For some reason, no one ever thought of making surface-colored screws. Think about it: if you could produce screws that would blend well with the color and texture of the surface they would be put in, you would make millions of projects and builds look way cleaner. Most of all, you would also make a killing by selling them on the market.

However, until some smart entrepreneur reads this, we have to contend with the use of those unsightly metal screws or using different, more visually appealing alternatives like welding or gluing.

Korean DIY enthusiast 검은별 공작소 DIY CRAFTS may be of assistance when it comes to hiding screws on wooden surfaces. Using a chisel, some wood glue, and a clamp, he shows an easy way to make it, so that no one (including yourself) ever finds the screws on your projects:

After showcasing a couple of conventional methods of connecting pieces of wood (such as hiding them under wooden pegs and outright using pegs as connectors), he gives us a step-by-step tutorial on his own method.

Start by taking a chisel and chipping a layer of wood off the top of the area where you plan to put your screw. This is the hardest part, as you have to make sure the layer doesn’t detach from the rest of the wood. You don’t have to worry about the peel being uniform, but you do need to take care as to not accidentally peel off any of the wood hiding the layer underneath it.

Once the layer is peeled, you can drill your screw onto the bulk of the wood. You can do this manually with a hand screwdriver or you can follow the tutorial and use a mechanical screwdriver to save on time.

With the screw in place, all you need to do now is apply some wood glue and clamp that peeled layer tight onto the wood. Clean the surface after it dries and – Bam! Not even you can find where you put your screws.

Of course, not being able to find the screws make it a pain to disassemble or repair, so you might want to put a light pencil mark in case you have to come back to them. Peeling the layer above the screw is also a problem, as it will most likely chip off and break due to the wood glue keeping it in place.

But if you’re making something to last, you won’t have to worry about these problems. You might even completely forget that your project has screws in it!
