Creative jig.
I would build something like that too, but i hate the look of shelf pin holes.

Could be converted for dowel joint holes drilled on the face of a board too.

Actually, very pellucid mud!

As the index hole size is independent of the final hole size, would larger size index holes and pin improve the registration and lessen wear ?

hi don
any size pin and will work
i chose a 1/4”pin to make the alignment of the bit and pin easy as this is very critical
and it also makes the index strip smaller
after many uses there is no noticeble wear
to switch to a larger bit just change the bit the center stays the same
hope this helps
