Default Drill vertical holes

I came across this simple method of drilling holes vertically. I'm sure that children wont miss a few Leggo pieces!

I think you could also use a right angle construction bracket, maybe $1.50. It will hold up in a tool kit, and you won't have an angry kid when he discovers you've swiped his Legos..

my vote goes to the non-wearing metal bracket..
that plastic Lego won't last long...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

I use my self-centering dowel jig. Just spread the clamp and set it on the surface. https://www.amazon.com/Dowl-it-1000-...70_&dpSrc=srch

Besides, Legos are really wake up devices. On your midnight trip to the loo, you step on one and wake up instantly. I don't think it's possible to put every single Lego away, there'a always a stray you find by feel.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Jacks will wake you up quicker than Legos. They leave more permanent marks too. DAMHIKT.
