I am planning to make some pencil holders from 8/4 purple heart – hope to end up with a block approx. 6×6 x 2” with three 1” diameter holes drilled down about 4 inches into one end.
Wondering if I should attempt drilling into the end grain or go with the side grain? Was planning on using our benchtop drill press with a forstner bit but suggestions appreciated here too since I don’t have a 1” forstner.
My normal approach of trial and error won’t work with wood this nice!
