Lazyman’s technique does require sawing in from a side, but after the center is out, you can cut off an end of the removed piece (for one that doesn’t go all the way through), and glue it back in, plus glue where the cut entered from the side. As he says, this is how bandsaw boxes are made.

Another thought: if you tilted the bandsaw table slightly, your center plug would be tapered, and would fit tightly if pushed through. (I realize that’s not very clear, but best I can do right now). In Belize, we watched a drum maker make a series of nesting drums this way.
