Pocket hole plug cutter

"Paul, the dowel is never going to split in the pocket hole as there is no lateral pressure at all. Even if it did, so what? The plug will still be there covering up the hole as intended. As a proper dowel, then yes the grain orientation is critical…"

"Friends who saw this could not understand how this was held together since they could not see evidence of screw holes.  I explained how the Kreg pocket holes worked and they were impressed at how it worked. "

"A friend of mine had a neighbor who cut down a walnut tree and asked if I wanted to buy some.  I had him cut the wood for the desktop 2 1/2 inches thick and the wood for the sides and bookshelf 1/2 inches.  I wanted the bark left on. …"

Pocket hole plug cutter

"Thank you Rod for your reply. Actually, after hitting send, I did think that depending on how you drill into your project, the grain pattern could actually be in any direction - inline or across, so your plugs would be suitable in crossgrain…"

Pocket hole plug cutter

"You are, of course correct.  The possibility of splitting is there, although I have not had it happen.  The advantage of this is that it is the same direction the surface grain is going and blends in to be nearly unnoticeable. "

Pocket hole plug cutter

"Surely the dowel cutter in the drill press should cut into the end grain of your offcut? The examples shown could split crossways, esp when being inserted into a tight pockethole, but drilling into end grain means the grain is lengthways along the…"

Thanks for the comment. For Mothers Day, I am thinking about making my mom a copy of that beautiful corner desk you made. I just don't know how to use a router yet.

Dave,
I really didn't have any plans, just kind of worked things out as I went. I used the idea from LL Bean:
http://www.llbean.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CategoryDisplay?categoryId=56831&storeId=1&catalogId=1&langId=-1&from=SR&feat=sr
I actually started with one idea in mind, that is to follow the LL Bean design and changed it several times. I built the shelves and put them in place before I put the finish on and my wife wanted several things changed, so I did and I'm glad I did, they turned out better. Anyway, all that is to say I really didn't have specific plans, just an idea that kept changing. I made the stand wider than LL Bean and the shelves a little shorter. The step by step photos may help.

Rod, did I say that I was an expert typist and an excellent speller?

Rod, I have been looking at youalbums and you do so very good work! Maybe with time and some experience I will be able to do as good as you. Projects are not going to be an easy thing to do. I have had a couple of Strokes, but I can use all of my extremities and mind. I am just a lot slower than most.

Thanks for returning my request. Rod it is nice to meet you. I am interested in your TV stand. Do you have any plans or drawings that would show any demensions? I am only interested in the TV stand. If you have any plans would you share them with me?
You can reach me at my email; dls.smith61@cox.net. I live in the Phoenix Arizona area.
