Bull's-eye alignment for large-diameter holes
Centering a Forstner bit on a workpiece can be difficult because the shape of the cutting head prevents you from seeing its point and your layout lines.
Drill a 1⁄16 " guide hole at the centerpoint of each hole. Ease the tip of the bit into the guide hole and take care to keep it in place as you turn on the drill press.
