How to Fill Pocket Holes Using a Dowel Rod01|03|13
We all love our Kreg jigs, don’t we? Most of us (like me) do not enjoy filling the holes. We could buy pocket hole plugs but they can be quite pricey especially when you have a project with a lot of pocket holes to fill. An easy and extremely inexpensive way to fill the holes is to use a 3/8” dowel rod and a Japanese flush cut saw. Sure, you’ll have to spend the money on the saw up front but it really isn’t that expensive (Rockler has them for $7.99 here). Dowel rods can be purchased for less than $1.00 and one dowel will yield tons of plugs!
