Nice job!

If you're in a situation where you'd like to toe nail/toe screw and you're having trouble, then one thing you can do is drill a pilot hole. I like to drill it backwards, start drilling where I want the fastener to come out and drill towards where I'm going to start the fastener. Then I can start the fasteners in the pilot holes before final positioning of the piece.

Obviously that takes longer, but it still may be competitive with joist hangers.

Cheers, Wayne
