I have had a first stab at turning pegs for the lute. It's only a practice run - the wood here is sycamore, rather than the pear wood that I will use in the end, and the peg is too large. But overall, not a bad first try!
When I come to the 'production run' I will probably make a jig for my lathe to follow a template in order to keep all thirteen the same size and shape.
