drilling holes in shelving close to the wall
Thanks All for the replies. I went with "Cabinetman's" suggestion and bought a right angle drill attachment. Although, since the cleat is 3/4 inch, I still won't be able to get perfectly perpendicular to the shelf and perfectly parallel to the wall, but it''ll be pretty close. The chuck is pretty small, so it'll do. Drilling with a conventional drill at an angle, I don't think will work too well and I have a natural aversion to using nails in my wood working, unless it's tacking something to hold it.
