the mark.

GOOF: Your dowel is too big for the drilled hole.

In any other drilling application, trying to redrill a too-small hole larger would be a problem, because the bit will not center itself on the hole. But not here.

How to fix it: Find the correct size guide and line it up with your mark over the too-small holes. Chuck the appropriate bit into your drill and bore new holes.
