I was asked to mount a bar to suspend cookware from in a kitchen. The plan was to use toggle bolts and mount it above another suspended cookware bar.
I began drilling my 5/8" hole through the drywall, and I hit the stud. I switched to a 5/8" wood drill bit ( paddle style ), and drilled about 4 inches through the stud, when my worst fears were realized - there's no gap on the other end, just more drywall.
So now i have two 5/8" diameter, 4" ( inch ) deep holes where I want to mount this bar, and I'm not sure the best way to proceed. Ideally sink some kind of anchor in there, probably meant for block or concrete, and mount the bar using the tension of the anchor?
Please advise, home improvement gumshoes. I'm trying to look good for my girlfriend on this one.
