Nail Head Size for String Art?

Westfarthing Woodworks asked 4 months ago

Hi!! I am sooooo excited to do this. Just have one Question.

What do you mean by a wide head for the nail?

Is 1/8 inch enough? Or should I try to find nails with a wider head?

Thanks!!

Thank you, look around for nails where the heads are noticeable larger than the shaft.

It’s a lot easier to wrap the string, and it won’t pop off as quickly.

1/8 might be a little small, but if you are using thin string then you will be fine.

Happy building.
