Crest rails are drilled

While I had the drill press out on the bench I went ahead and drilled the spindle holes in the crest rail. I’ve got some more shaping to do and then the best 4 will be used on the chairs.

Drilling Spindle Holes in the Seat

My second had POS drill press needed some help in order to drill spindle holes in the seats. I built a quick platform and used holdfasts to lock the drill-press in place. I wish i could justify a decent one but i just so rarely need a drill press.
