I originally Posted this as an Answer to another Post about How to fasten a Table Top without Nails or Screws Showing.
It’s a “Veritas” Tool from Lee Valley. I’ve had one for 3 years now (One of those ..I HAVE to HAVE One of these!). From Memory I believe it is $29.99. If you go and have a “Look See” there is a PDF Download detailing Complete Instruction for Using it. Sorry, but for some reason I’m NOT able to “Bold” to attach the Page Link here.
I’ve used it a few times and it REALLY does work well. This is a Reproduction of an Old Tool & Method that I thought you might like to become “Re-aquainted” with.
It’s a 1/4” Gouge Chisel that Lifts a Small Sliver of Wood at a 15 Degree Angle. Once Lifted, hammer in the Finishing Nail. Glue it back down in place using the Bottle of Fish Glue Supplied (Mucilage is okay also). Tape, Weight or Clamp it in place. When dry, clean it with a Damp Cloth (Both Glues are Water Soluble). Light Sanding if Needed. DONE!
