Woodworking Tip: Drilling Centered Holes in Dowels

By: John Doyle

John shows us a simple trick by combining a couple of clamps, a scrap board, and the drill press. Using this tip, you can easily hold the dowels and accurately drill your holes.

If you like the the Woodworking Drill Press Table seen in this video you can get the plans from WoodsmithPlans.com.
