Thanks for the info

Most will use a Japanese flush cut saw to saw off most of the plug and then sand it down.
Like James said the flush cut saw or cut a small amount off the round end so it runs deeper in cut.
i just use a belt sander (porter cable 2 1/4") with some 100 or 120 grit.takes it down pretty quick
In a pinch I have cut my own using a bandsaw.

I drilled a series of pocket holes in the face of a 1x6. I then drilled out a 1/8" hole through each pocket hole. I cut some 3/8" dowel and drove them into the holes. I then set up the fence on my bandsaw and using a resaw-type operation, I fed the wood through. Then I popped the plugs out with a nail. They didn't require a lot of sanding, but from a time-management standpoint, the store-bought are a lot easier.
Look for my video and make your own plugs

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
