I think lemon wood is all that is available.

Any finder you may be buying your other boot making supplies should have them.

Apparently there is only one manufacturer of shoe pegs left in the USA, the Kearsarge Peg Mill in New Hampshire (http://www.kearsarge...o.com/index.htm). I'll bet an email to them will reveal stockists, or perhaps they will supply direct.

There's a video of their production facilities at http://vimeo.com/19504789

Why not just order a $10 box of Blau Ring pegs from Panhandle or Southern. Get short ones if you are doing soles and longer (not much) if you are doing heels, or at that price, one of each.

To cut in the sole, use an American Channel tool. You can get one of these from Bruce Johnson. They run about $65 or so. Then cut the edge down with a French Edger with a little grinder work to make the toe of the edger ride in the channel. A tool was made for this, but they appear infrequently. If you are not a toolmaker, you might want to have Ron's Tools make one for you.
