So today I was working on my newest Maloof rocker, this one built from 8/4 tiger maple. I was done for the morning grinding and sanding and decided to put the screws in the legs. I was using 3” stainless steel square head screws and half way through the 10 screws I stripped one out with the head just barely sticking out. Initially I freaked out and had to remember to not screw out curse words because the neighbor kids were out :). I decided to use a 1/2 drill bit to remove the head and then plug the rest of the screw under ebony. While I was using the 1/2 drill bit I realized that I took the stripped part off and was able to reseat the square headed bit. Thought I would share my little situation so that if anyone else faces this problem they have a solution.
