Now this is the only real original invention in wood working in a long time. I love it..

NAILS any NAILS if they are steel, wood, titanium, or kriptonite are/were never meant to HOLD/WITHSTAND A FORCE. Nails of ANY kind are to simply to hold load bearing things in place.

More specifically, nails are designed for shear loads, and they do well at that. These wooden nails will probably be fine as well.

As stupid as this might sound, one thing I could see wooden nails being used for extensively is constructing pallets. Think about how many forklift tires (even solid rubber ones) have been damaged by nails on the floor from disintegrated pallets? Or, burning pallets for firewood and having to collect all the metal afterwards? etc.
