Drilling the peghole in the backboard

To ensure the clock will hang level, the peg hole must be centered between the edges of the backboard. Mark a drilling point on your centerline l7/s inches from the top of the arch, then bore the hole on your drill press. Install a /2-inch brad-point bit in the machine and clamp a backup panel to the table to help minimize tearout. Position your mark directly under the bit, clamp the backboard in place, and drill the hole (right).
