Broken nails, screws and how to pull them out

My wooden cabin has some nails and screws which are broken when I tried to remove it. Here I show you how I remove them normally.

First you drill right next to the nail a hole around the 0.5 - 1 mm larger than the nail diameter.

As a second step, press the nail with a screwdriver or even better with an old needle rice towards the newly drilled hole.

After some back and forth, the nail can be removed with a sharp pair of pliers. The remaining hole can then be closed with glue and a small piece of wood.
