3 common cut nail home depo


Nails come in many forms, each designed to accomplish specific tasks. While the humble metal fastener might spring to mind for most folks, there are actually three varieties of nails you should know about. These consist of cut nails, box nails, and finish nails. This article illuminates these and explores their uses.

Crafted from a single strip of metal, the age-old cut nail was for centuries the only option available for projects requiring nails. Its traditional narrow shape continues to be popular in certain situations, such as when building a log house.

Easily transported and stored due to their packaging in small boxes, box nails are the most common nail used in construction. Larger and thicker than cut nails, they have a sharp point that permits them to penetrate wood more readily.

The strongest and biggest of all nails are finish nails. If a firm bond is what’s needed, that’s when they come into play. Be it trim or moulding, they are the ideal choice for applications requiring a powerful grip. Their small heads ensure that they remain almost level with the wood’s surface, providing a much more polished appearance than box nails.

When it comes to making great projects, having the right tools is key. Knowing this, it may be wise to consider the nail type you’ll be using; metal nails come in several distinct varieties with properties ideally suited for different applications. So, if you want the best possible results, make sure to pick the one that is best-suited for your project.
