Today I tried making pegs for the false shallow holes. I had alot of trouble doing it the way the plan instructed.
I would get chip out when carving the facets on the plugs. I’m using Walnut, maybe Ebony wouldn’t do this because it’s more dense.
So I setup my disk sander miter to 30 degrees, & sanded my 3/8” stock to a point. Then I cut to the hole depth, & tapped them in with hammer with a dab of glue. Here’s a short video of how I used my disk sander to make the facets on the pegs.

Being that I had a fine grit on my disk, it blackened the ends of the peg, so it looks just like Ebony now.
Here’s another short Video, faceting the pegs with sandpaper, on your bench. this works fine but a little slower than the disk sander.
