Lap Desk for Kids

SHOP TIP

SHOP TIP

Perfect plugs made easy

To plug screw-hole counterbores, such as those in the sides (A) of the lap desk, you want the plugs to fit snugly and match the tone and grain pattern of the surrounding wood. Make virtually invisible plugs using a tapered plug cutter and a cutoff from the part that needs plugs. Drill the plugs, as shown above, making the length equal to the depth of the counterbore plus 1/8" and leaving about 1/4" of space between them. Cut a few more plugs than needed so you can choose ones that match best. Pry the plugs from the cutoff using a straight-blade screwdriver, as shown below right.

built one that holds a lap top, and gave it my God Daughter for a graduation present ... she loves it. Would up a pic, but do not see how to do it here. Made it from multiple type woods so she could see the different woods.
