Nailing techniques


Face-nailing through the top or bottom plate into a stud makes the strongest connection. Its also easier and faster than toenailing, where the angled nail sometimes can cause splits or miss most of the stud altogether. Either way, lay out stud locations on both the bottom and top plates at the same time.  

Keep the frame from shifting by standing on the stud as you nail.

 

Start a toenail at a shallow angle, and steeper it once the point grabs.
