I am building some bookcases and drilling holes for adjustable shelves in birch plywood that will be painted white. The problem I am having is the plywood is slightly splintering around the holes when drilled. This is not acceptable as it will really telegraph when painted. In the past I have always dadoed and this is my first time using this method.
I am using a jig and drill from Rockler, Is this a quality of drill issue? technique ? I was going to spring for the Festool system but I do not use this hole system enough to justify a new router and hole drilling system.
Thanks for any suggestions
