Best way

I was lucky today and found some free 1"x10" pine lumber on Craigslist in the "Free" category,enough to build 20 med. supers.The only problem I have is about a third of the pieces I cut have open knot holes in them,ranging from a 1/4" to 3/4".

I hate to toss them because that's the only thing wrong with them.

Sooooo my question is what's the best way to plug them? :dontknow:

Hey just noticed this is post # 400 for me :Dancing: :yahoo:

Whittle, cut, or sand a dowel to fit the hole snugly. Plaster the hole and dowel with glue and drive it in. Cut and sand it flush the next day. I have done this with cypress and cypress dowels. I hate to waste good wood.
