Drywall Screw Fixes Wooden Plug CoverupComments (0)
best tricks come from the most frustrating situations. One of my passions is refinishing old furniture and that means
sometimes dealing with someone else’s “quick fixes.” One day while trying to
refinish a dresser for my sister, I came across a stubborn wooden plug that
covered a screw head. Completely fed up,
I drilled a 1/8" pilot hole through the center of the plug and
then drilled a drywall screw through the hole.
The drywall screw bottomed on the hidden screw head and forced the plug
up and out of the hole. A well-bonded
plug may need to be drilled out.
