I was taking a practice exam and one of the questions asked what the most efficient location for a wood connector would be?
I was thinking it would be Perpendicular to the grain, but the correct response was:
Parallel to the grain.
Nails and screws are typically inserted perpendicular to the grain not parallel. These are very typical wood connectors. Anyone have a decent explanation or source for visuals and for explanation. Thank you. I just want to clarify it so I see it and can understand this one better.
