Hello LJ’s !

The finish is “teak’s oil”.

Advise are welcome !

Thx for looking.

These look great!

Since you seem to have a knack for these things what is your advice on drilling the hole at an angle? I’ve tried this and destroyed some nice pieces. What tool/bit do you use to avoid splintering and spinning off of center?

Thanks!

Thx everybody,

Glenns, I use a jig to drill the hole and to avoid splinting I place a plywood scrap between the bit and the piece. First time, I didn’t do this and a big split appear… Then I place a plywood scrap with 2 clamps and everything is fine. I’ll put a pic of the jig this evening if you want.

Have a good day everybody!

Thanks Seb, I think I have an idea of what you mean. Place scraps on both sides of it, take another piece of scrap wood that you’ve already achieved this hole on and clamp everything together and drill away. Is that correct?

Thanks again!

GlensGrandson, you need to place a scrap wood (here plywood) without hole and drill the hole through this scrap wood for each piece, else you’ll have spit.

That’s easy and fast when you know that !

Have a good day

Seb
