I need to drill 2" dia holes in the ends of 4 4X4's to accept dowels. When I say end I mean in the end grain and parallel with the grain. I only have a bench top drill press which I tried with a 2" forstner bit but failed miserably. I thought about using a hole saw in my hand held drill but then I would be left with cleaning out the hole afterward. The 4X4's are 28" long so they are difficult to work with.
No announcement yet.
