Does the piece of wood crack when you nail it?

Be especially careful when nailing thin materials or the edges of materials. If you crush the tip of the nail and make it a little round, the board will not crack easily, but to prevent cracking, it is recommended to drill a pilot hole before hitting the nail.

The depth of the pilot hole is about 1/2 to 2/3 of the nail. Please do not spare this effort.



We, Suikoushya, plan to establish a school building in Ile de France in 2022. 

This is a project that we want to build with Suikoushya graduates and professional woodworkers. Through this real construction project, Takami would like to pass not only Japanese woodworking techniqs and craftsmanship but also the spirit of the Japanese people involved in making things.
