spacing for screwsing ipe

rocketdoctorOctober 18, 2009

I am face screwsing my ipe boards with #8 Stainless Steel fasetners , countersynching and predrilling all of them. I am putting two screws on each joist 1/2" from the sides. Is this too close to the edge is there a recommend space they should be set.

Sounds about right to me. J.
