This pair of cufflinks is one that R&D has been working on for some time. The inspiration came from some Shaker furniture that was held together with pegs driven into holes. I immediately sketched the idea in my Moleskine and thought about how to make it work for cufflinks. I have made a number of prototypes from Bass wood and mostly just shelved the idea. I had actually cut out the "surfboards" but was reluctant to cut the holes and pins for fear that they would not be precise enough. After purchacing some precision cutting tools, I was confident to give it a go.

I am quite pleased with the result. In fact, I really like these - both the idea, in general, and the execution of this pair, in particular. The horizontal - surfboard - is made of macassar ebony and goes through the button holes. The pins - one of which is permanantly fixed in place, the other is tapered and split half way down the middle much like a clothes pin, allowing it to be compressed to fit into the hole and then expand again to hold it in place - are made of East Indian rosewood.
