What paint are you using and how are you applying it?I have a jig from Rockler. My question is more about trying to not get paint in the holes if drilled before. or if i drill after i paint the paint seems to tear a Little so the holes dont look as clean.
I use brad point bits for drilling holes. If you drill before, and don't load up the paint, the holes should remain relatively clean. If you drill after, and the paint is cured. a good brad point bit should give a very clean hole.Behr water based and I will spray it.
