HOW TO HIDE YOUR FINISHING NAILS - fixing tutorial




Did you install some trim in your home and lost steam when
 it came to hiding the finishing nails. You can always go back 
later and finish it off when you are inspired. May this quick 
little article help inspire you and reassure you it is easier than
 you think.



When counter sinking the head of a finishing nails you use a 
hammer and a nail set. That's the longest tool you see above
 on the right. If you don't have a nail set you can substitute a
 large nail or even a screw driver bit, I've tested both.

 You line up the pointy end of your chosen tool on the 
exposed nail head and tap the hammer on the other end until
 the head of the nail is no longer sticking out.



Once I have tapped all my nails under the surface of the
wood I use wood filler to conceal and fill in the hole.



I can sand the filler flat in 30 minutes for a perfectly flat surface
 or
 with a light touch of my index finder I can smooth it over almost perfectly and move on to painting.
Not everyone has great patience!


HAPPY FIXING
