Drawbore Pin Pair
Drawboring is a great way to make a strong mechanical joint. A wooden pin is hammered through slightly offset holes in the two pieces, and pulls the joint together. You use Drawbore Pins to pull the joint together first (with some force and a twisting motion). This eases the edges of the hole, making driving the wood pin easier. You can also disassemble the joint if you want to work on the fit some more before permanent assembly.
