Down a peg


Transparent Peg

I think this transparent 6″ peg from Azar (which comes in a comparatively affordable 25-pack  I am going to need about 175 dollars worth of these prongers!) looks quite stylish in comparison to the metal ones, which I am taking, er, down a peg for what they often do to threads.  Okay, bad pun, but it’s early on a Sunday morning, and I have not even had coffee yet. Thing is, it doesn’t quite look centered in the pic from Bed Bath and Beyond, and they don’t carry them in my local outlet.  What to do?!

Here is pic of the peg rotated using Gimp.  Duh.  Thanks for the tip, Norma!

  1. The peg is lying on the side. It will be centered when inserted in the board. Good luck with your new shop. I am enjoying following your progress
