Post saddle might have been a better term to use.That will work as long as his deck posts are not subject to frost movement and they are down to depth. In my case the deck is floating and can move if it wants. Last winter the frost went down a good 5 my deck didnt care it lifted about an inch. I left it 3 below the outswing door and 2 lower than the house floor. Come spring it went back down. If it was nailed I might have to worry over time it getting loosened up but the screws seem to just let it flex and mostly move as one unit.
Im not sure what a gallon bucket is to drill in?????
