Timber Frame pegs – 12″
12″ wood pegs are available in Red Oak (the most common), or White Oak…known for superior rot resistance.
‘Plan for extra time for peg processing…email us if you need to know what’s in stock’…for now, we’re listing every size as ‘Out of Stock’ until our next pallets of product arrive.
- Straight pegs are turned approximately 1/64″ oversize
- Double chamfered pegs have a decorative 45 degree chamfer on either end.
- Tapered pegs are 1/64″ over the measurement, tapered to 1/64″ under.
- Drawbore pegs are like tapered pegs, but the first 3″ is sharply tapered to 5/8″ diameter…only in Red Oak
Image showing 4 pegs styles is as follows from left to right…Double chamfer, Straight (starter bevel one end), Tapered, Drawbore
NOTES: Due to the mechanism that holds the peg during manufacturing the 3/4″ diameter tapered pegs start with a full 1″ diameter for the first 1″ of the peg…once you cut this off (often after installing), you’ll end up with an 11″ peg.
NOTES: Many auger bits actually cut +/- .030 oversize…in part so the shaft/flites aren’t overheating with the friction of rubbing on the sides of the hole and part due to many woods appear to ‘swell’ a bit upon drilling. In effect, making the hole close to call size. Thus, it’s best to have a couple of brands of drill bits available to test against.
NOTES: We’re discontinuing the 3/4 double chamfer and all Locust pegs…so what you see on the site is what we have left in those items.
