Painting with nails and thread

We need: - plywood; - wood stain; - gloves; - yacht varnish and brush; - newspapers; - scissors; - nails (it is better to choose carpentry or furniture nails, we used - “Blister nail carpentry worked"); - hammer; - thread.

The plywood thickness must be at least 4-5 mm, otherwise it may be difficult to nail in.
