You do seem to be able to get plug cutters up to 1” plug diameter. Beyond that you may have to laminate a whole lot of wood together and turn them round on a lathe – lots of sanding required after cutting though.

Are you planning to round the edges? It occurs to me that a bead tumbler might work, thoough I’m not sure how consistent the edges would be on across all pieces.

I’m interested to see what other ideas come up, because every time I have considered this, I have just decided to buy a set. I can even point you to some web sites.
