finishing nail This is a nail with a small head just slightly larger than its shank. The head is slightly rounded at its edges, or is a consistent diameter from the top of its head surface to its shank (this is a very short distance compared to its shank length). It is used where it is not desirable for a nail head to show on the finished material. It can be driven into material with a punch or the force of a mechanical nail gun so that it can be covered with similar-looking material to that which it is nailed into so that its location is concealed.
