How to make a table-mat with pegs

Hi my dear friends! Roman is here with you as usual. Today I’d like to show you how to make a table-mat for hot dishes with pegs.


First, we need wooden clothes pegs, I’m going to use bamboo pegs, elastics for banknotes and super glue, but not hot-melt glue, as it’s going to melt under the heat.


First, we need to remove metal piece from the peg, it’s easy to do. Just pull the wooden ends sideways, and coil is removed.


Then, stick these two parts with glue in this way and temporarily fix it with the elastic.


In conclusion, we have to stick pegs together around, in this way.


Do you know?
From 1852 till 1857 United States Patent and Trademark Office granted patents on 146 different clothes pegs. Nowadays, wooden pegs are almost out of production. There have been left only two wooden clothes pegs factories.
