    • Sadly, I don’t have enough ten-penny nails to try it. You’ll have to let me know how it goes, but I recommend trying it sober first.

      • I need bigger nails – either that, or superglue !

        tried this several times with largest nails I have – 50 mm long

        laid one flat and ‘laced’ others on top of it left and right – exacrly as in video

        finally, laid another nail ‘top to tail’ on top of the other nails but . . .

        every time I tried to pick the bastard ‘assembly’ up, it collapsed before I could try to balance it on the upright nail hammered into block of wood

        conclusions I have drawn from this repeated failure to replicate result ?

        if superglue wasn’t secretely applied to horizontal nail before lacing others on top of it, then

        a. I need more wine
        b. I need more ‘head’ **

        ** I need nails with larger head – to more securely ‘hook’ over horizontal nail before trying to balance on target upright nail
