Default Drill angled pilot hole with little to no error

Gang

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?

Carole, thinking about this through my mind's eye: lift the jig to place drill point, then lower jig to tilt drill and voila.
