the nail does not have a hole in the end through which to get where it is. Both end blocks are solid.

Thanks for your help with the Dado question.. I would’ve messaged each of you individually but I have yet to accrue 5 posts as far as I can remember.

Boil, compress, drive the nail, let dry, touchup. Good “trick”.

There is a video on this at woodworking for mere mortals most of us have seen. Steve Marin’s site. He’s also a member. His videos are interestingly funny.

Roy Underhill did this nail trick on his show. Do a youtube search and it may be on there

Wow, I didn’t know Steve Martin was a woodworker. I just thought he was a wild and crazy guy. LOL! :)

Super easy trick and it’s an eye catch. I did it and put in up at the fire department and everyone was wondering how in the world the nail got there.

Hey Johann, look at my projects and you’ll see one with marbles inside a piece of wood. It was done the same way. Cut it on the router table, trimmed the insides, boiled it, pressed it in the vice just enough to open it for the marbles. Good question maker.
