Mystery staple hardware


I am looking for a decorative/functional staple looking piece of hardware that you can use to hold fracturing wood together. I have found an image of something but do not know what it is called to search/buy it.
Could anyone help me out?

Tite Bond II and some clamp until it's dry would hold a lot better then those.

What you are likely looking for is called a butterfly key joint. Very PIMP detail. I'm not sure if the name carries for the metal verity, but I love this "roll with the punches" approach to carpentry. Post an update pic.

You might be referring to a "hog ring". This is like a C shape...a special "hog ring pliers" is used to squeeze the points closer together. These are usually used in concrete forming, as well as in pig's noses. Lumber yards might have them, but farm supply stores carry them most. Another way to bond slivers of wood or wood that has split is to inject wood glue into the crack with a syringe or just press it in, then use a clothes iron on high, dry heat and hold it tight against the area to be joined. Keep holding until the glue boils and bubbles. This dries the glue in seconds and works like a charm. This hot iron can also be used with a wet rag to steam out scratches and dents in wood. I have steamed out a 1/4" deep dent in a finished oak stair tread where somebody dropped the corner of a board on it. I hope this helps. If you need more of an answer give me more details.

They're more commonly used in hog's ears, to mount an ID tag.

No...but I've seen a sow throw a steel panel higher than a flying PBR rider. Hogs ARE tough critters.
