after publishing this instructable i realized that the nail trick shown in it was quite unknown but appreciated by many.
Now it gets its own instructable and I dedicate it to the old swedish carpenter called Henry, that tought it to me a couple of years ago!
it makes nailing in angles much easier
the nail curves and will be almost impossible to remove - a incredibly strong connection.
Step 1: Bending the Nail
Step 2: Nailed It!
Step 3: The Result
i split the joined pieces in order to show how the nail curves inside.
the result will be even better with longer nails - but i ran out of them ;)
if you're nailing a beam from both sides and with more than 1 nail on each side it'll become a very strong connetion.
I hope you find this instructable useful for your future projects!

Kudos to Henry - YOU NAILED IT!
