I'd like to replace existing handles on the kitchen cabinets in my Waco, TX, home with door pulls. The pull would use only one of the existing holes. I don't want the plug to be obvious. Is this a do-it-yourself fix or do I need an expert?

This can be a tricky process but I would place it in the DIY category. If they are stain grade cabinets, you may need to do some colored putty mixing and experimentation to get a color match that will blend perfectly with the wood.
If they are painted you can use a paintable wood putty to fill the hole and get a paint store to do a color match on the cabinets to touch up the puttied hole.
