I'm looking for some input from those of you out there who may be more experienced in life and/or have some old boards kicking around. I'm looking at getting a custom board made - it will be my very first time! I may get one for me and one for my daddy, depending on if I can afford it.
One of the many decisions I have to make is what type of pegs I would like. My choices seem to be:
I would love to keep the board(s) for many years, maybe even my whole life. So I like the concept of getting wooden pegs, but will they last? I really don't like the thought of getting plastic, so the only other option is nickel-plated. Do any of you guys or gals have any advice for me? Do you think wooden pegs will hold up over a decade or two?
Thanks! Dorothy :)
PS @Greg M It was sweet of you to set up this network so big thanks to you! Luv it!
I'm making crokinole boards and I use brass screws with heavy surgical rubber. The action is fantastic and fun, They look good but wood always looks great. This rubber is too fat to use with wood as the wood would have to be too skinny to be durable.
