Nailing is apparently the most basic way of assembling. What could be easier than planting a nail? However, anyone who has ever been hammered on a finger or has not been able to fully hammer a flathead nail knows that it is not so obvious. Some basic tips allow you to nail correctly and efficiently to then make assemblies whose strength can be quite satisfactory.
The nailing is based on two basic elements: hold the hammer (balancing in the hand) and find the right rhythm of the hammer. Necessary, nailing assemblies require especially precision and a good disposition of the points (technical name of the nails), such as alternating inclination for a good angle assembly. Nailing allows the assembly of panels as well as rafters or thin rods.
