Woodworking Jig & Tips for Drilling Angled Holes into Dowel Rods
Switch & Lever made some hangers from “round stock” and made a custom jig to do so – the jig is really clever, especially the ‘clamping slot’ cut into the jig (totally gonna use that trick for future dowel jigs!).
Drilling angled holes can be a challenge and a half, and it’s compounded by drilling into round stock. Follow along as I solve this issue, without fancy tools (beyond a drill press), and build some nice wall mounted hangers in the process.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
