These are untapered pegs made from dowels. The fit in the hole was snug, but not enough to hold the string in tune. If you look close, you can see that I used a screw to pull the peg tight against the bottom of the hole. I also sprinkled a little salt in there to give it more friction, sand works too. This arrangement does hold the string in tune.

Worth another look for a cool handmade tuner idea?  The black screw locks the tuner.

Crow, here's the pic I was talking about. These are untapered pegs made from dowels. The fit in the hole was snug, but not enough to hold the string in tune. If you look close, you can see that I used a screw to pull the peg tight against the bottom of the hole. I also sprinkled a little salt in there to give it more friction, sand works too.

Good luck!
