I looked for plans, etc. for such a jig for months … finally gave up and bought a Oneway Drill Wizard at the AAW symposium … https://oneway.ca/DrillWizard

Look at Woodgears.ca for ideas. You would
want an indexed turntable of some sort and
a horizontal drill.

I suggest picking up a used Shopsmith for the
horizontal drilling part.

Haven’t done it a while but just used my tailor tape measure to mark even dots on a piece playing with index feature held my drill at ninety degrees and worked just fine. Have admit don’t like the indexing system on my Jet 1642.
Here is simple homemade solution.

Places like Fastenal and other places sell metal sleeves in various sizes for not much money.

Good luck with it.

You won’t regret it … a little pricey, but like other Oneway products it is first class.
