So a two-penny nail is 2d. And a 2d nail is 1" long. For every penny you add, the nail gets 1⁄4" longer. So a 3d nail is 11⁄4" long. A 4d nail is 11⁄2" long. A 5d nail is 13⁄4" long. And so on. You select your nail’s length based on the thickness and density of the boards you are using. Here’s how the old rule works: 1. Determine the thickness of your board in eighths of an inch. For example, a 1"-thick board would be 8/8. A 3⁄4"-thick board would be 6/8. And so on. 2. For a wood of medium density (walnut or cherry, for example), pick a nail where the pennyweight matches that thickness – an 8d nail for 1" stock.

If we’re confident that the shelf will fit between the lines, then we can preserve the lines until the final fitting, cutting inside of them, and trimming down to them.

The crossed recess of this bit is much easier to use than the common slotted screw because the driver will center itself in the screw head and won’t slip sideways as you turn it. If you have a choice when buying screws for assembling woodwork, get Phillips, not slotted heads. Drywall screws are more brittle than woodscrews, but work fine in most cases and cost less. The magnetic bit holder chucks in your cordless drill and uses replaceable insert bits. The downside to the Phillips head is that the end of the bit will eventually wear out.
