Default Cross dowell help

Hello folks. I am currently making a dining room table and would like to cross dowel the leg/stretcher assembly to the mounting sill for the slides. I have never cross doweled before. The legs are 3 1/2 square hickory and I want to cross dowel a 2 x5 inch sill across the top of the leg assembly to screw the slides onto.
Any suggestions as how best to line up the three holes?
Thanks

Thanks for the help guys, but I don't think either one of these will work for my application. The woodpecker jig won't index in far enough to center the hole in the end of the leg.
The other jig is too pricey for my budget and you're still left with trying to drill the holes perpendicular to each other.

Neville, Quillman is Pat Warner and that is his site. If you like what you saw there you should check out his books.

Mike, thanks I will, I have had some set backs and I am only just now getting stronger so I will add that site to the ones that I will have a look at, I was always aware that as the USA is so large and the market is also very large then there must be a lot off cool stuff that just does not make it to Australia, for now I am working on my Router Lathe/Copier and it is looking very nice, it will work so as soon as I can then I will post a photo of my 35mm P&N Skew with a 13 sided handle attached.
