There are hole saws available --but I have never seen one small enough to bore into a 1 inch dowel.

Your best bet is to buy a wood plug (they are sold buy the bag in any big box store)

then drill a hole using a regular bit. Glue in the store bought plug--sand--done

--Mike--

Note---If you must match the wood in your 'post' you can make your own plugs --using a plug cutting bit--Look for the plug cutter in the same section of the store that sells the plugs.

You need to supply a detailed scenario. If the reader can't understand what you're trying to do, you won't get any constructive guidance.
