Get the Greene & Greene look without the hassle

Ebony plugs with chamfered ends are a hallmark of Greene & Greene furniture. But these decorative details prove time-consuming to make and fit. FastCap's Artisan Accents plugs provide a shortcut: Simply make a partial mortise with a few mallet taps on the included chisel, and then glue in a synthetic-wood plug for an authentic look. FastCap's square plugs measure 5/16"; the company plans to offer other sizes in the future.

Be careful. I bought these a couple of years ago. The points on the corners of the chisels bend easily rendering the whole point of it useless. I think the metal they use is too soft and didn't sand up to one project where the wood was mahogany. In fact, I had to basically abandon/file off a corner because it had bent and rotate the tool to finish my project. Great idea but bad materials.

Randerson54 got it right ... this is akin to gluing shelf paper onto MDF and calling it "solid wood".

Get the Rolls Royce look without the Hassle of the overated handmade craftsmanship with our handy new Rolls in a box fiberglass panels. Now you can sport your Pinto like never before and go from Zero to Hero in no time flat. What? Greene and Greene as seen through the eyes of Ikea.

I agree with everyone: It's a great idea, and on my "want" list, however, it does look like it has at least a semi limitted place and time to be used.

or you could just buy a cheap replacement mortising chisel for about $6 instead of $20.... and then buy the accents separately.
