A traditional Timber Framed building's
 incredible strength is a result of a complex
 selection of joints, many of which are secured 
 by oak pegs. The wooden peg is hand crafted 
 from carefully split, straight grained heart of 
 oak. The pegs you see here below is nearly 
 two days work. 
         Structural tests have shown the simple 
 peg capable of withstanding forces of around  
 a ton.
