Thanks to both Chrisstef and DS251!
I looked into those drill guides and when I can, I will be getting one. they look like a viable replacement for a drill press until I can just buy a new drill press :P

DS251, great idea! I was thinking of something similar for a different project, but this might just work for this afternoon!
I have a piece of 4×4 that I have drilled and cut. Drilling it ate up my battery, so I have to wait for about an hour for it to charge back up and I will be giving this a shot. With some good clamping, this might just be the ticket, as I am only drilling 3/4 ply.

I am dying to get a decent set of forstner bits! I have one hole saw, but it is much too large for this particular project. I will be getting better tools as my budget dictates, but for now I live in work-around city…

Thanks a ton for the suggestions and I will post how well this worked for future reference!
