Hi! Thanks in advance for your help! I am a rookie trying to diy replacing the wooden balusters on my stairs with iron ones. I removed one wooden baulster and a wooden dowel is glued in the hole. Any recommendations on how to remove it?

Welcome to the forum, Megan! Add your location to your profile so it shows in the side panel.

I would cut it off flush and drill it out for whatever size dowel you intend to use on the repair, unless your new iron ones don't required a dowel. Either way I would cut it off flush.

Thank you, David! I will update my information on my profile. I’m in Pa. thanks for the advice. I think it’s probably the best idea. The new ones don’t have dowels so they will just go into the hole. - Megan
