Nails can split any wood. No mention of the thickness of the stock,
nor the application. One trick is to hold a nail up and tap the sharp
end making it blunt. This will crush the wood fibers instead of
wedging the grain apart. More time-consuming but I prefer to drill a
pilot hole for both hard and softwoods.
