I just found an excellent piece of oak for a rustic table top. I was hoping I could put an agle on the log legs for astethetics. Is there a way to drill angled holes with my forstner bit? The underside of the top is rounded.
However, one time I needed a hole on an angle so I drilled a blank at 90º and then cut the end of the blank across the hole at a suitable angle. Next, I secured this drilled blank to my subject and used it as a guide. After drilling well into the subject, I no longer needed the guide and could complete without it.
My objective was to insert a narrow dowel rod into a cross grain area to provide some internal support so it was not critical.
I don't know if this is of use to you but I hope it is of some help.
