wood plugs

I was working with some curly maple and since wood plugs are not available for that, I bought a plug cutter at a well known mail order and store retailer. Not top of the line but still pretty expensive. In cutting plugs on my drill press, the plug cutter didn't really cut as much as burn it's way through no matter how slow I went. Using these plugs left a nice brown circle around the plug on the finished product. Thanks but no thanks. I'll use filler and marking pens to fill countersink holes or buy them if they are commercially available, and I don't think that they are for pine. The filler is readily available. Does Ron have a drill press? Is it safe to cut plugs without one? Do I have an unlimited budget like the woodworking shows on TV?
