Others have spoken as to when to use screws. If you want to have a big "ah-ha" moment, get a selection of screws from McFeely's or other quality screw provider. After finding out how screws are supposed to work, I literally tossed my random collection of screws from the BORG and who-knows-where-else.
I do use cut nails as a decorative element sometimes. I also use nails in 2x4's and double-headed nails as cleat-fixture "keepers" . . . I'll have to add a pic once I get home in order for that to make sense I think .
Ok, here's the clipped double headed nail.
It inserts to remove any chance of the french cleat mounted fixtures from getting bumped (or earthquaked) off the cleat but still allow easy relocation as required.
