Pegs for hats, coats, dog leads, bags etc.....
A productive use of the very small pieces of wood. My coat pegs are perfect for hats, coats, bags, etc. they are hand turned as sets or as individuals and finished with my signature hand carved 'off the knife' faceted face.
The size and style of the pegs is determined by the internal structure of the split log. By making the pegs in this way I can use as much of the wood as possible and therefore minimise the waste.
The pegs are all finished with a beeswax finish. Some are natural wood and others are half or fully ebonised*.
* Ebonising is a process of darkening natural or introduced tannins in the wood with a vinegar solution.
