After a little experimenting, Tom got the process down to a science. Here's how it goes: we bought a piece of red oak hardwood and we drill plugs out of it to fit into the holes in the floor.
|This could double as a whacker when the kids act up - very aerodynamic, and very hard.|
|Fool your friends with a "wine cork" made out of red oak hardwood!|
|Checking to see how the plug holds up to "the hammer test." It passed!|
|Really? 6 holes in a row? Necessary or overkill? You decide.|
|Many of the holes are oddly shaped and go through both the floor and support beams, so you can see straight down to the basement through them.|
|Not sure if you can really get a sense of just how thick the floor and support beams are from this, but man, they're thick!|
|Success! An elephant wearing high heels could step on this bad boy, and it's not going anywhere!|
