Sorry I missed the location.

Plugs made from Blackwood. I have a few small logs. The milling starts on the band saw, where I’ll cut a board a little thicker then needed, then rip. I use a hand plane to the final thickness. I like to pillow the top when these sticks are long using progressive grits of sandpaper over a thin sponge. Final at 400g leaves a nice shimmer, cut to length with a gents saw. Once plugs are cut I’ll fit by cutting a back bevel on the bottoms with a chisel. A little glue in the square hole, and tapped in to stand proud of the surface. I really like Greene and Greene furniture where these plugs add a nice accent.
