Prevent over-drilling

Tip #2: Sometimes, chuck jaws are all you need

Try this if your drill bit is short enough (or your screws long enough): Mount your bit in the drill chuck so the length showing measures slightly longer than the length of your screw. This makes it nearly impossible to drill too deep because the chuck jaws prevent it. However, those jaws can mar your workpiece, so stop just short of the jaws touching the wood.
