I built a trellis this weekend, but before I could secure it to the fence it got blown over in a storm. Luckily, the only damage was a splinter on one of the horizontal boards. I glued it back in place and now I have to re-attach the crosspiece that went there.
The former nail hole is marked by the red arrow. I plan to drill out the glue that has filled the nail hole and drive a new nail in. Is this the right approach? Do I need to take extra precautions to prevent additional splitting or undoing my repair?
