Drill bit guide

The trick to drilling the holes for the legs in the Three-Leg Stool is to use a drill bit guide, refer to Fig. 2. The guide I made is used for drilling l"-dia. holes at a 10° angle.

To make the guide, start by cutting a scrap piece of 2x4 to length, see Fig. 1. Next, draw centerlines across the block. Then drill a 1"-dia. hole centered on the block. Finally, tilt the table saw blade to 10° and trim off the bottom edge of the block at an angle.
