    Default patching wrong screw holes

    hey all so i had a bit of a brain fart today and predrilled my decking fascia on one screw line wrong. just seeing if anyone has had any success with that wood putty or glue with saw dust or have a better option. only 2 holes.

    Putty and outdoor decking is not going to last. Best option I can think of is a plug cutter and align the grain when fitting.
