Experimenting with Dots

I recently bought some new plug cutters and brad point bits, so I did some experimenting with dot patterns in cutting boards. I used a set of Famag plug cutters. They were fantastic, very precise. I used lee valley brad point bits to drill the holes. The combination of the lee valley holes and famag cut plugs worked very well, no need to sand the plugs and no gaps when glued up…pretty pleased with how the bits and plug cutters worked.

Sure looks like you had a fun time with the testing period. :-) it sure does add a new design element to incorporate. Looks like you have some big ones and small ones in your collection.

Your selection to use a brad point drill bit is it a personal preference? I’d have thought forsner bit but maybe better fractions to select in brad points? Just wondering that’s all. My cutters are itchy after seeing this post. Cheers.
