Hi:
A few weeks back this thread:  Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register
appeared in "Turning Talk".  While I still stand by my opinion that it could not be done in any kind of economically viable way I still found myself intrigued with trying to figure out how I would go about doing it.  This video shows the method that I came up with.

Bob,

Thanks for posting this video!
While my skills are not to a level that I would consider responding to his request, I did ponder the puzzle!
I did not consider the router method you showed, but I see the  the efficiency of it! Thanks for solving the puzzle. Thumbs Up
I always enjoy your videos!

Hi, Joseph:
My understanding is that the peg shaver works something like a pencil sharpener to both taper and size the pegs.  A matching tapered reamer is used to ensure the taper in the hole matches the taper of the pegs.

Take care
Bob
