Drilling Hacks Part 2 - Woodworking Tips and Tricks

Drilling holes in wood is an important part of woodworking, and I know that I very often just take it for granted ... until I have a failure, like wood cracking on me, or I can't find the bit I need, or I can't find the key to my chuck, I try to hold the wood with my fingers and end up making a bad cut ... and the list goes on ... There are many, many things we can do that will make our hole drilling quicker, easier and almost always give us better results too, and for me, sometimes it's just slowing down a wee bit to take the time to do a better job, and a lot of doing a better job for me means convenience ... that is, having things handy to use and not having to go looking or making things just so I can drill some holes ...
