so, starting with the piece of firewood, then working down to a round peg with the drawknife (there was an earlier post on this) I made a bunch of pegs. Well, now that I'm about to use them, I wanted to make sure I got them to be the right size. So, first, a little more time in the vise, shaving them slightly:
and then checking them with a 1 and 1/8th inch hole cut in a scrap piece. I figure if I can easily slip on the 1&1/8th, it'll be just about right to force into a 1 inch drilled hole.
