I needed to drill a 1/8” hole in a 1/4” dowel at an angle for two of the braces, so here’s how I got it done.

First cut a 2×4 at the right angle then cut a groove for the 1/4” dowel to sit in and then adjusted the drill to be just off center as the brad bit wanted to move around the rounded shape, but by setting it just behind where I wanted it [and drilling very slowly] the drill bit pulled itself to the right spot. [We are talking about a 1/8 brad bit here]

Hope this is helpful for someone.
