Well, here are the pedal blocks that my Dad made for my first bike. A couple of chunks of 2x4 above and below the pedal. I don't remember how he attached them.
I'd used the pedals as the basis for making your new pedal blocks. With blocks top and bottom, you don't need to worry about counterweights and it doesn't matter which side is up.

You can measure the nuts, washers etc to know how far you need to countersink. I'd just use standard nut and bolt with a lock washer, and washers by the head of the bolt and the nut. File off any excess bolt. I believe my blocks were uncovered, but the decking material that you showed looks good. Slap some of that on top of the blocks and it will look good and give him a
