One word regarding wooden pegs... They look the part. But if you find yourself in a summer thunderstorm, with the accompanying downpour and the howlers, you will find that quite a few of the pegs will shake themselves loose (unless you've made them 2 inches thick and 20 inches long. Each! :lol: ). And added to the heavy soaked canvas that means you'll soon have a collapsed tent. I like wooden pegs cut on the spot to replace missing ones, but I am afraid that metal v-section pegs win it every time for me.
