Pounding nails is quite the trick for someone with one hand.
I would know.
I’ll tell you the most frustrating ones to pound, though. You know those cheap book cases you get from Walmart or Target? The ones with that fake-woodgrain piece of thin cardboard you have to unfold and nail to the back of the case. Yeah, that situation is insanely frustrating. And I know those are technically brads or whatever, but still…frustrating.
I’m not much of a handy-man (ha) per se, but I’ve used a hammer and nails enough in my life to know…it ain’t easy. I also know that I haven’t tried many other methods of doing it. I’m sure there are countless tools or helps or methods out there, I just haven’t used them. Again, necessity is the mother of invention, and let’s be honest…it’s rarely necessary for me to nail stuff together.
So, this is how I do it. One way, at least. If you have a cool way of doing it, I’d love if you made a reply video! And if you have questions or ideas, post them in the comments section. I promise to respond. And if I don’t, you can totally nail me on it. GET IT? See what I did there?!
