If you're gonna use a pencil sharpener, you might as well use one you know will do the job.

Lee Valley used to sell this item they called "the plugger". It was meant to be used to repair screw holes but I've used it for decorative doweling as in using a contrasting wood dowel to create clock dials on wooden burls. You sharpen the dowel in a pencil sharpener and the plugger reams out a hole to the same taper. It may still be available, but not at LV according to the ad.

Wouldn't be difficult to make one. Me, I'd just drill a hole, then use a dowel the same size as the hole, not too difficult to make dowels either.
