Nice set up!  Looked like you were going to try and do 3 at a time?  Too difficult to get them all lined up?  Or are those for different diameter pegs?

The Extra Holes are different sizes. when i made up the tool i wasn't sure what type of fit i was going to have. so i made 5 holes total, in 0.020" increments, from nominal to plus 0.04", and Minus 0.04", this way i'd be sure to be able to fit the pegs to the hole i was drilling.
it's a little nerve racking driving your first peg, as you already spent a lot of work on the job and you don't want to split the timber. 
they drove in really nice, and seem to be pretty tight.  only time will tell.
i lubed up the hole prior to driving in the peg, so everything went together very nice.

Very clever Bob.  Thanks for the additional pix too. 

Are you already thinking about your next timber frame project?
Peterson 10" WPF with 65' of track
Smith - Gallagher dedicated slabber
Tom's 3638D Baker band mill
and a mix of log handling heavy equipment.

Are you already thinking about your next timber frame project?

Ironically, I'm thinking of building a Large Table and some furniture, plus an outdoor bar or something.  i see you make Slabs?  where are you located?
I'm in Wilson NY.
I have some boards left from the trees I had the timbers cut from, so i was thinking of making the table from them.
I wanted to incorporate a truss like structure as the table base, with the same acorn tip as my trusses.  i thought it would look nice.

secondly, I thought I'd make a small piece like an end table to show how the pieces fit together. not to many people understand the mortise and tenon structure, so if the end table was made like this, then i could have the pins loose fitting, so i could take it apart and show how it all fits together.  what do you think?

Both good ideas.  I can see where a large slab table made using timberframe joinery would be really attractive.

In answer to your question I'm in New Hill, NC, about 30 miles SW of Raleigh.

Custom Made Post Mount, laser cut with my logo
All the mounting hardware I used was stainless steel
The post sits onto a 1" riser to keep the lumber off the concrete
I used 1/2 all-thread and finished them off with ss acorn nuts
A little artistic features, and you have yourself a nice post mount like none-other
The Cement Piers are 18" in diameter, and minimum 48" in the ground for a solid base
I squared them off on the top to allow the Pavers to fit snug, rather than trying to fit around a circle.
