Bender Heaven

12 13 OE Old English, MO Modern English, ON Old Norse, Sc Scottish. making pegs woodworking for stability You can make blanks for your pegs from either splitting a 23 inch diameter log in two, or a 58 inch diameter log into 6 or 8 pieces. Pegs should be at least 10 inches long and even longer for pitching on soft ground. A lateral cut must be made with a bow saw, a quarter to a third of the way through each blank on the long edge, about a fifth to a quarter of the way down it. Next you will need a billhook or small axe and a chopping block. Put a long point with sweeping cuts into the end furthest from the rope slot, as with the poleends earlier trying to leave a small flat spot at the tip to prevent it splaying out if it comes into contact with a stone when being driven into the ground, a flat tip being more likely to push the stone aside. To make the rope slot hold the point uppermost, cutting down from an inch or two above the lateral saw cut. Slice into the wood at an angle less than 45 degrees, cutting a triangle shape out of the wood. Next, holding the peg in the same position, cut a triangle the same size off the bottom of the peg, on the edge below the rope slot. This will prevent the edge above the rope slot from breaking off when the peg is struck with a mallet. You can also chamfer the blunt end with a sharp knife, taking the corners off so that when struck with a hammer the top does not flay out, rendering the peg unfit for reuse.
