Cherry pie and pegs

One of the many things I love about my wife is her cooking. She really enjoys it, and it shows. I especially like it when she makes a fruit pie. For example, cherries were on sale one day, and the next thing I know, we have a fresh cherry pie for desert. And you know what makes it even better? She makes the crust from scratch. Boy does she make good pie crust too!

So what the h*ll does this have to do with woodworking? Like my wife’s pie, the project I am working all is 100% home made. On the bottom of the pool cue rack are three “shaker” style pegs used for holding various ball racks. The plans call for you to buy the pegs and they give you a source. Hah! I can make my own shaker pegs thank you! All I needed was a piece of scrap from the rough cut boards.

From these...

To this....

To these!

Granted, my friend and full time turner, Andy Coates could turn these three pegs faster than me, but at least I can do it myself. I like being the well rounded woodworker, a renaissance woodworker of sorts. Maybe my liberal arts education made me that way…….naw….. it just made me harder for me to find a job.

    I suppose it is too late for a photo of the pie?

  3. The pegs look great, Yaakov. Not bad for a square, liberal arts peg trying to find the round hole in life. Shalom.
