The forstener bit is a great woodworking specific drill bit and a must have for your woodworking shop. Unlike brad points, twist bits and paddle bits, a forstner bit allows you to cut bigger holes using your drill press. They make a higher quality cut and leave a smooth inside wall and a flat bottom. George Vondriska also demonstrates how to use a forstener bit to make a mortise using a drill press with a series of overlapping holes.
