Another one very well done. Especially liked the hooks and the skull.

Thank you!

Very nice. I liked the text inserts explaining what to do too. The skull and hooks were cool, but I don't know if I would have the patience to make all the nails for a house though! Lol

I have always wondered if forged nails hold better than factory nails?

Early america was built on Women's and children's labor.. Before the factory made nail, roughly 50% of the nails were made by women and children and would be paid piece work after the tooling and materials were paid for..

I probably have a few thousand in a nail keg.. A great warm up project..

yes, they hold nearly 150% better.. All hardwood flooring nails are square shanked for that reason..

A hand forged nail will hold even better than this as the uneven forged surfaces allows for the wood to fill in these little voids aiding in holding power. . you will more likely pull the head off a forged nail before you will ever get it out..

Another very good video. I spend my time watching what part of the anvil you are using and the angle/pattern of your hammer work. With any occupation you are striving for no wasted moves. I have a friend who is a line cook who could school the Fuckers at the Cordon Bleu. He is absolutely poetry in motion there are zero wasted moves and you work the same way.

Glad you liked it.. I'm getting slowly back into proper shape/form.. Should be pretty good by end of summer..

I'm hoping to get 2 videos out a month, so if there is something you guys want to see i'll do my best to make it happen..
