Making a large-diameter hole is a job for a drill press, right? All you need are an assortment of hole saws, a set of expensive Forstner bits, and perhaps a wing cutter. But this approach has limitations. For example, you may not have the right size bit. Or it may be impossible to get the workpiece on the drill press. When the hole you need to make falls outside that range, or can’t be done with a drill press, you need another solution. To get the job done, I turn to my router. With a router, some common bits, and a few simple techniques, you can create smooth, large diameter through holes with ease.
