Yes, I have adjusted them since I started. Initially, I had 1" holes, 1" from the edge. Now, I have 3/4" holes, 1.5" from the edge.
Normal peg hole location is 1 1/2" off the shoulder of the tenon timber

Jim, with the square rule method, (as illustrated in the maroon book), the timbers are pared down from 8x8 to 7x7s at the joinery. So, even though timbers are pared down to get to the perfect timber inside, the rule of thumb, therefore, always applies to the rough timber?
