A carpenter friend of mine showed me this puzzle quite a few years ago.
The object of it is to balance 10 nails onto the head of one nail.
Most of the time you just pound one nail into a board, & try to solve it.
But I thought this could be a nice item for the coffee table.
So I dug in my scrap wood pile, & found a nice chunk of Birch.
I spent about 4, or 5 hours total work on this, including getting myself organized.
I also had to clear off my lathe which hasn’t been used for awhile. <(:O}$
Materials for this project isn’t much. A chunk of wood, & eleven 16d Nails.
I gave it a beeswax finish.
Get some nails, & try solve it yourself.
There are no gimmicks, just think outside the box.
