I want to know where you got those tiny nails, or how you made them!

Hi Ray
For the exposed bent nails, I stretch sprue for all my nails. I lightly heat an old knife blade, not too hot, and press it on the end. The nails in the wood in simply sprue ( stretched) and inserted in pre drilled holes. I sometimes do what Marc does, liquid cement on the ends to soften the plastic, then press a small screw driver or such against it. That's about it.

I got so addicted to the real wood I went ahead and made a "homemade ladder". It's still drying, will post a pic when the paint is on.
