It’s colorful, too!

Prevent accidental hammer dimples by using a sample piece of laminate (available at any home center) as a shield. Drill a hole slightly larger than the diameter of the nail-head in the center of the laminate, then set the sample over the nail and pound it in until it’s flush. Remove the laminate and set the head with a nail set. — Darrel Crawford
