Hello. I’m relatively new to woodworking. Started with just random repairs and things around the house and moving into bigger projects now. Currently I am finishing up a hanging garage storage shelf. I am also working on a barn door. I was hoping someone could give me some advice on the barn door. I have hit somewhat of a road block. I used nails on the front to hold the pieces together (along with wood glue). Once I counter sunk the nails into the wood and covered with wood filler I realized that they are pushing through the back side of the wood just a little bit. Is there a way I can file down the tips of the nails? Any suggestions on tools to get to help with that? Removing them all would be difficult. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

OK, here goes. I split a piece of plywood as a backstop for an indoor archery range in the basement. The hinge screws stuck out a bit and my wife scratched her hand on one. I took the ol' Dremel-style grinder and cut-off wheel to the screw's tip. Cut off the tip and then ground the shank down flush with the wood. Grinding stone was too slow. Hope this might get you started. BTW, I had two Dremel tools and #3 is Lowe's house brand that looks identical to the Dremel. Wouldn't be without one. Handy as a pocket on a tee shirt.
