Where can I find little round pegs/disks

Q: I just had a 40 year old floor refinished. At the beginning and end of each piece of wood is a little round peg. During the sanding several of the pegs came out and disappeared. Where can I find the little round pegs/disks please?

A: Often these pegs were 3/4″ diameter. You might find a flooring retailer who has some but more than likely you won’t. However, you can buy a dowel cutter at hardware or building supply stores. They come in different sizes for cutting different sized dowels. It is used with a drill. Then all you need is the same type of wood as the peg to cut one.

These come in different sizes and is what you will need.
