This is a simple idea, stolen from years gone by.
A “bill peg” , they used to be on desks everywhere, where you “pegged” a bill
or an invoice until it was filed.
The base is a turning of ash, the shaft a brass rod, 1/8” .
for the shaft I chose a length, about 5 and a half inches in this case, chucked it in the drill press and used a file to shape the point, (after a suggestion from SWMBO, I then went back and dulled the needle point a bit :-]..
the shaft’s held in the wood with a touch of tightbond, but before insertion i ran an oversized metal die down it the depth of the hole, just to add a bit of tooth for the glue.l
