How to Make Drill Press Cut Wood Plug Gluing Mess Free

Wood plugs dipped in glue Dipping the plug in glue instead of brushing or squeezing is more efficient and avoids the mess.

I use lots of tapered wood plugs in my projects that I make with plug cutters on the drill press. Brushing or squeezing glue onto the plugs has always been a messy, time-consuming affair. Once, while I was breaking new plugs free from their board, I realized the tapered holes they leave behind would make a perfect reservoir for glue. Now, I just fill one of the holes with glue and dip my plugs into it to prepare them for installation. No more squeezing, brushing or mess.
