: I'm a rookie working on making a small vanity top from red oak. Originally I
: planned leaving a knot in but now would like to remove it. I saw Norm use a
: jig & router that cut the knot out in a butterfly pattern. Is there a poor
: man's way to remove the knot, and if so how? BTW, I do have a router?
In planking my boat, I am forced to clear out knots and fill
them. What I do is drill out the knot and then epoxy in a plug made
from the same material.
However, I'm painting the planks so there's no visual issues.
