Ok, there weren’t really a million holes, maybe just a hundred or so. A couple of folks earlier suggested that we buy a set of plug cutters which we got at Lowes Depot for around $13. Since today is my birthday, I also bought myself a drill press. My 13-year old was enlisted to cut plugs and boy is he good at it. Slow, methodical with nearly perfect plugs from scrap wood.
He filled the jar completely and we are about half way through and this is all that are left.
He helped me put in the plugs by following along and cleaning up the glue after I put in the plugs.
