Introduction: Filling Pocket Holes Cheaply
The goal of this ible is to show you how to fill the holes left by pocket screw holes from kits like Kreg's. They do sell special pre-cut dowels to fill the holes, but you don't necessarily always have some on hand, and wood type options are limited, and you can save money

Step 1: Material
- 3/8th dowel of the wood type of your choice
- wood glue
- a saw; fine toothed is best, or a flush cut oscillating power saw
The big advantage of the power tool over the hand saw (other than speed), is that you can cut the dowel before the glue has set, which means less waste (no need to pre-cut with extra wood), and less tearing.
Step 2: Apply Glue
Put a bit of glue in the hole.
Step 3: Shove the Dowel in There and Cut It
Put the dowel in there and cut it with the flush cut tool.
Step 4: Cut Square
For the next one, you need to cut the dowel square on since the tip is already at the angle that you need it.
Step 5: Repeat As Needed
That's it! Keep going.
