How to counterbore?


Recommended Posts

I typically just use an auger bit in a brace like Shannon said. Just don't make the same mistake I did the first time I did this. DRILL THE COUNTERBORE HOLE FIRST, then drill the smaller screw/bolt hole. The threads on the lead screw of the auger bit rely on there being wood in its path so it has something to grab into and pull the rest of the bit through.
