Drilling the Mortises

A simple angle bed for the drill press gave me a consistent splay on the legs. The sightlines drawn on the board are aligned with the point of the Forstner bit and the venter of the drill press column, so nothing goes askew. Also, firmly clamping everything down here was important – a 2″ Forstner bit has some torque capabilities that need to be dissuaded.
