Created a bunch of plugs from mahogany and teak using a drill press (purchased for this purpose). Tried the spruce rods and it does not look good – even with some stain to make it blend in.
I received my pike pole end and got work creating a new pike pole. I used a closet rod of fir and put on a cedar knob at the end. Used a palm sander as a ‘lathe’ to finish the end.
I refreshed the boarding ladder.
