That sounds like it would work pretty well. Cut as a plug first, then hollow out the middle with Forstner bit (or regular bit if bolt head too small) to match bolt head size. I can then sand/round over the outside. The major hazard will probably being very slow with cutting to prevent shattering the small part.

Thanks! Will try it and post pics.
