« Part 1: The Bench Part 2 of Workbench series no next part

Well, I got some free time today, as well as a new Craftsman Drill Guide (thanks Santa) and 10” woodworking vise. So, I decided my work bench needed some dog holes. I spaced them 4” apart and used a scrap piece of pine to keep the top from tearing out when I drilled it. I only completed one row before my drill batteries ran out. I guess 3” of MDF can drain a DeWalt 18v pretty quick. Maybe I’ll get the other half done tomorrow.

Would an auger bit be more efficient at drilling these? Is there a difference between spade bits and auger bits when using a battery powered drill?
