Starting near one edge of the back board, mark the peg holes along the middle of the stock. (The pegs on the board shown at left will be spaced 5 inches apart.) Install a /2-inch brad-point bit in your drill press and attach a backup panel to the machine table to minimize tearout. Set the back board on the panel so the first mark is directly under the bit and clamp a board as a guide fence to the table flush against the workpiece. Then, butting the back board against the fence, drill the holes (left).
