Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Hard Core Remodeling but Were Afraid to Ask Part 52!

 So how do you go from a screw hole... a plug... an indiscernible surface?
 Why, you use this.
And we at
 Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Hard Core Remodeling but Were Afraid to Ask!
are about to explain.
 THIS is a plug bit.
You use a scrap of wood, drill in, and create a plug.
 There are different sizes, so just match it to the hole.
See that?
 Pry it loose with a nail.
 Pop it in the screw hole/
 Use a little glue.
 Match the direction of the grain, and wipe up the excess glue.
Now what?
Sand it.
 We'll be merely varnishing the surface, so this makes it seamless.
 And when you're doing work this pretty...
 ...this professional...
...this light, bright, and sweet... have to remember...
...Besties, it's all about the details.

I love this series. I am going to have to quit making excuses and start my own remodel on my house. You make it look so easy. Thank you for sharing.
