Project Update #6 – Drilling Holes – #WoodenPress


By: William Wong

Today we needed to fit our wooden dowels into our wooden boards. First we needed to know how to use the drill press so after we reviewed on how to use the drill press again we will be able to start drilling! When we first drilled our holes we decided to use a smaller drill bit because we can start drilling bigger if the dowels don’t fit but we cant make it smaller. In our first attempt we drilled a little too small so the dowels barely fit into the holes. To fix that problem we use a bigger drill bit the dowels should be able to slide easily without much friction.
