That looks to be what Liam did with his moose. He is an artist, that is for sure.

Sorry for the long title, I have waited a while to post this as I have pondered how it would make sense to handle this. Now that I have kicked it around my head awhile, I am putting it out there to see what others do.

Scenario would be as such, maybe we are working up a roof where there will be a Moose built into the roof (crazy I know but thought it would be fun). We work the roof over to the point where the moose is to be constructed, we install the moose and now we need to work the field into the moose or would it be the moose into the field.

In the shingle world we can bend things and lift them to nail under them, slate...not so much. I suspect the answer to be slate hook/nail&bib and/or installing a second nail at the upper corner of the slate above the normal fastening area.

So did I get it or what did I miss?
