Drilling dominoes

I used the handy dandy drill press I made, to drill some holes into some dominoes. Who knew it wouldn't be as easy as I thought it would be. *sigh* It did help in keeping the drill straight & steady-- but I did have to apply a lot of pressure to drill the holes into the dominoes. I don't know what made me think it was going to be easy-peasy, wishful thinking I guess! I think I drilled about 30 of these big dominoes--- only 5 didn't come out perfectly--- the holes being offset just a smidge~ Here are some smaller dominoes all finished, you can see the size difference between the two.
I like how they turned out... I need more ;-)

You did a nice job drilling! I drill at the very top and then add a tiny eye hook. I'm going to try drilling your way!

If you have time I have a question.. how do you find all the swaps? I keep looking for some to join and i can never find any.. I've only been able to find two so far. :/
