Clavos

I would like to show you the many different uses for our Clavos. Clavos are decorative nails that can be used to accentuate furniture, rustic wood doors, wooden gates, picture frames, chests, countertop edge, wooden crosses, shelf edges and other crafts.

You will need to drill a pilot hole and use a rubber mallet, except for some softer woods. If you have any questions about using clavos, comment below or use the ‘Contact Us’ form.

Here is an example of a wooden cross adorned with black clavos in 2 sizes.

I made another wooden chest out of 1×4 pine boards and added 30 silver clavos and medium star nail.
