We did a quick install of a peep hole today. We have a solid door, so it’s hard to see who’s on the other side of the door when the bell rings.
I decided to use a Forstner bit instead of a regular bit because a regular spiral drill bit tends to drive in like a screw and blow out the other side. There is very little to hide any splinters on the inside so the Forstner bit with gentle pressure was the safe choice for a clean hole.
Another great, unrelated, feature of Forstner bits is that they can be used to drill a non-through hole with a flat bottom, this comes in handy for certain tasks in woodworking.
