Timberframe Pegs

hdw0065-pegs

Wood used in pegs is selected with as linear and clear a grain as possible.  This reduces the likelihood of breakage, particularly with the timber frame pegs.

Used By:

  • Timber Framers for joining the pieces of their frames together
  • Log Builders in building traditional log trusses
  • To hold one log to another in a stack
  • In kit log construction they are sometimes used at the point where two logs are spliced together to form a longer run
  • Traditional wooden boat builders use them in a variety of applications.

These pegs are made of air-dried hardwoods...most commonly  Red Oak...some builders prefer White Oak or Black Locust...particularly for exterior uses as they have a bit more rot resistance, and may switch to Red Oak for interior use as it's a bit more pliable. We sell more Red Oak than the other options.

  • Wood used in pegs is selected with as linear and clear a grain as possible. 
  • This reduces the likelihood of breakage, particularly with the timber frame pegs.

NOTES: 

  • Wooden pegs should be stored in a cool dry place as they can shrink or swell depending upon the humidity in your area.
  • Drill bits can vary in size. Therefore, some builders have an assortment of bits. They drill test holes before using the pegs so they can match the bit to the pegs on hand.
  • For those of you using the 'Ultra Smooth' Wood Owl bits...you'll find the 1" bit is actually 25mm, thus we offer some 25mm pegs.
  • If you're working with hard woods, such as White Oak or occasionally Douglas Fir, some builders prefer to use a tapered peg.
  • Pegs are coated with wax (e.g. put into a large tumbler with several blocks of wax and slow tumbled until they're totally coated with a light coating of wax. It will look slightly shiny).
