If you have ever had a piece of wood split on you because of a nail, then you know just how frustrating the whole thing can be. Not only is it frustrating, but it can also end up being fairly expensive if you have to keep going back and buying new wood and nails so you can get the job done. There are several tricks that you can use for keeping nails from splitting wood, most of which don't really require a whole lot of extra work or money from you. All you need to do is use one or more of these methods, and the chances of you having an incident of splitting wood will be dramatically reduced.
