When nailing the sides or floor to the chine logs a preacher will help keep you "straight". Made this one for the sides. It angles the nail so it does not split out and it can also be used as a guid to space the nails.

Neat, Bee. My preacher is a little different in that I use it to skip over the roughed out bottom panel to get the nails into the chines along the right line and at the right angle. The preacher is a lifesaver, isn't it?

I have one of those also. Made it just for this build but forgot to post a picture. I actually managed to misaligned one nail using it. My fault I thought it was telling me wrong so I did it my way. Wrong! :oops:
