A repair is simple! Glue it with white glue and toe screw it together with wood-screws! Next time, drill your nail holes with a drill bit that is slightly smaller than the nail.
My father used to cut the head off a nail, and used it to drill the pilot hole also!
And if you want to make it extra sturdy, sister a 2x6x11" along side it and screw it to the stringer. (Pre-drill holes for screws) so as to not split the patched piece and you should be good to go!:thumbsup:
