Drilling tips for wood

1. Use the right drill bit: For wood, use an angle bit or a straight bit. These drill bits feature sharp tips that help prevent drill drift and provide a clean entry point.

2. Mark drilling locations: Use a pencil to mark the exact location where you want to drill holes. This will help ensure accuracy and precision.

3. Use pilot holes: For larger holes, it’s best to start with smaller pilot holes to guide the larger drill bit and prevent breakage.

4. Clamp the wood: If possible, secure the wood to a workbench or use clamps to prevent it from moving while drilling.

5. Drill at the Right Speed: Use a moderate speed when drilling holes in wood. Too fast and it will break, too slow and it will burn.

6. Backing Board: If you’re worried about the back of the wood cracking, place a piece of sawdust underneath to prevent tearing.

7. Remove wood chips: Stop drilling regularly to remove wood chips in the hole to prevent the drill bit from clogging and overheating.4pcs chamfer countersink drill bits (2)
