I have a dremel but no drill press. Any ideas how to go around this problem? Glad I found this thread, I was thinking of ways to do something like this.

A drill press is pretty much mandatory because you want to bore a straight hole. And, if you are using a 2x4 piece of wood, there's not a lot of error room. Have any friends with drill presses???

Next to my dog, my drill press is my best friend.

Not that I know of but I'll have to ask around now. I had a neighbor who had one but that's across the country.

I'll think of something then and update you guys.

EDIT: I always knew I should've gotten one earlier when I had the chance!
