Home Depot used to sell this neat modular shelving system called "Peg-Lok". It consisted of various pre-cut boards held together with press-fit pegs that could be combined in a variety of ways to make linked shelving units. After recently moving across country, I sadly discovered that all my Peg-Lok pegs had been lost. Fortunately, there was one loose peg in a box, which provided the template to design a replacement.
If you have access to a decent saw and jig for cutting angles, you can easily make these tapered pegs by cutting 7/8" dowels into 1.5" long segments, then cutting diagonally across the segments at a 10 degree angle. However, if you have a 3D printer and no wood tools, this model is for you!
- Lose your Peg-Lok pegs.
- Print attached STL file.
- If you need more pegs, goto 2. (If you have an automated build platform, tell it to goto 2 while you goto lunch.)
