Drill angled pilot hole with little to no error
Here is a technique I have developed to make very accurate pilot holes for making interior cuts.
Here is a PDF with the instructions on how to do it. With less error you should be able to drill smaller pilot holes and have less to sand later. I figure it take about 2 minutes to make one.

I have used a jig similar to the one suggested and it does work. I now have a rotary tool mounted in a Dremel drill press accessory and get perfect angled holes that I use in doing double bevel inlay. 6.6°

So many times things are easier when you look at them from a different direction. Great idea!

Not quite sure how you see where to drill the hole. Do you push the bit through to line it up?
