What nail is best for beading? What nail is best for glazing? What nail is best for framing?

 These are all questions we get on a regular basis, and today I'm going to offer just one solution for ALL of the above! So, without further ado, let's examine 23 gauge headless pins...

Or, if you'd rather hear a real person explain...


So, just in case you missed it, 23 Gauge pins are the finest 'brads' you will ever come across. They're totally headless and so once sunk into the surface are nearly invisible to the naked eye, defeating the need for Woodfill. Our good friend Steve demos the pins perfectly in this video here. The 23 Gauge Headless Pins are perfect for all kinds of intricate second fixing, as depicted in the following poster:
