Everyone knows how hard it is to hammer a nail into some solid wood. Nails are often bent, thereby delivering a lot of trouble, and sometimes irreparable marring the appearance of the product. Will help here… the usual candle. Enough beeswax to the tip of the nail — and it’s even in the solid material will go much easier. And this “grease” was always at hand, try this: drill on the handle of the hammer a small hole (Ø5 and a depth of 10-12 mm) and fill it with wax or paraffin.
