Ok keep it clean... My question is for my perches. I used some little metal doodad to make a perch and under the weight of some real fat chickens it's starting to bend. I want to take a 2x6 and attach it to the stud in my coop to take the place of this doodad, and I have the crosscut saw to make the 45 degree cut, but how do I attach it to the stud? A 2x6 is way to long to shoot a nail through the meaty part of the edge and I want to keep the face of the boards towards the sides of the joint. I could glue it, but how do I hold it? I'm afraid of shooting a nail too close to the end of the board because I'll just blow off the edge of the board and there'll be nothing left to hold the support. So if any really savvy wood worker would give me a suggestion I'd love, love, love it.
