Re: Bench dog hole repair

I'm guessing the benchtop is long grain, the dowel as in the diagram end grain. I would give some though to making a rectangular mortise in the benchtop and matching long grain plug. Drill at least most of the way through the plug on the drill press, glue the plug in place, then finish drilling through the plug.
