drving pegs in drawbored joint

 

I wanted this picture in last night’s post about drawboring, but couldn’t find it. So today, while sorting pictures for my trip to Colonial Williamsburg, there it was.

I am driving the tapered oak pegs into the drawbored mortise-and-tenon joints. You can see four more pegs lying on the bench; mine are not all that long, about 5″ or even less.  They are the driest stock in the shop, shaved from riven stock, never sawn.  There will be lots more of this.
