Furniture Repair Tips: Plugging Screw Holes : Remove Plug to Repair Holes in Furniture


Ok. Our first plug came out pretty easy, just
by drilling a small hole inserting a screw and wiggling it and pulling it out. If that
doesn’t work, the next method we’re going to try is drilling small holes around the
edge of the plug very very close to the edge and injecting hot water. So, I’ve set up my
drill with a real tiny bit. And, I’m going to drill. I’m going to start by drilling four
holes. Now, this is usually done when you need to
save the plug. Like I said before, sometimes your plug is going to be a particular color,
a particular kind of wood. And, you need to save the plug. Now, these little holes will
show up when we reinsert the plug. They can be covered up by wax stick the same way we
did with the first plug. These wax sticks are available at your local lumber store.
And, they come in a variety of colors. And, so when we’re done with this plug you’ll just
take your wax stick and rub it in the holes. And it will hide these little holes.
