Scotsman: I a complete uneducated and inexperienced newcomer. So I just try the first thing that comes to mind. I needed flat bottom 1/2” holes and grabbed a forstner bit. If there is a better way I’d love to learn.

Rick: I’m good with that bar in the back. I took a piece of 1/4” dowel and wrapped it in sandpaper and chucked it up in my drill press. Since that back piece has holes all the way through I just slipped it on on the little dowel and sanded the inside of the wholes.

So is this the result of a cheap forstner set?
