Nail gun? Hammer? Finishing nails for wood trim?
I am a complete novice, but willing DIY. I need to install door trim and baseboard in my bathroom. Nothing fancy, just ranch oak. Asked my neighbor, but he is too busy with his own DIY projects.
Would it be best to rent a nail gun or use a hammer? Neighbors wife said I would dent my wood using a hammer.
Do I need to drill pilot holes, or will the nails go through the trim and cement board and studs?
I already bought 2 1/2 inch finishing nails, planning on doing it myself, since there is not much to do. But now I am having doubts.
I can do this, can't I?
Is that the right size nails?
I just really need to get it done so I can get my tile done, so I can get my toilet, shower, and sink hooked up!
Any tips or suggestions?
Otherwise, I think I may stop at the rental place and get a nail gun!
Thanks so much!
