Works very well for me, because with my projects the nail holes are either inside, out of sight, or another piece is glued over the nail holes; so either way, they're nicely hidden. On the very rare occasion nail holes will show on something, the pilot holes are drilled in a pattern, so the nail holes look like decoration.Small pilot holes and nails work great if you can stand the holes.
Where do you get commercial hot glue sticks?I use commercial hot melt glue. To remove spray with methyl hydrate (wood alcohol) and the glue automatically releases. The key is commercial hot melt, not the hooby kind. The first time that I was introduced to this method I scoffed at it being possible. Works fantastic!
