In some instances, where a purely Decorative truss is called for and visibility of hardware is not desired, concealed wood screws or small dowels may be used to assemble the trusses. For this assembly technique to be used, certain conditions must apply such as limited truss span, smaller member size and lighter weight wood species. SWC assembles these trusses utilizing specially engineered and counter-sunk wood screws or dowels which can be sanded flush with beams or left protruding slightly for an antique appearance. This approach allows for an economically priced Decorative truss with no hardware showing.
