  Reproduction of a 19th Century Rocking Cradle by James E. Price 3 of 3  

I then whittled a bevel on one side of the peg. The peg is inserted in the hole with the bevel AWAY FROM THE SHOULDER. At this point I sometimes use a drawbore pin in the hole to pull the tenon tight against the mortise opening but in this case I determined the peg would be sufficient to pull the joint together.

The peg is then driven home in the slightly offset holes through the mortise and the tenon. This forces the tenon shoulder against the area around the mortise.

The peg is then cut off flush and smoothed.

This photo shows the rockers and their stretcher under the cradle body.
