Driving Small Brads and Nails

Question: I'm trying to drive small brads into a piece of molding and keep hitting my fingers and damaging the wood. How can I

drive the brads in place without driving myself crazy?

Answer: Try inserting the brad through a small piece of paper or tape to give yourself something to hold onto. You can also use a pair of needle-nosed pliers to hold the brad in place until it's firmly set.
