Super Simple Horizontal Boring Jig

I needed to drill some fairly accurate holes in the ends of a long board.  So I made this jig to hold my drill in a horizontal position.  I was careful to make the centerline of the drill parallel to the edge of the base.  That way I can line up both the jig and the workpiece with the long edge of my workbench to more or less guarantee a straight hole.

Nice jig; I like how you used the C-clamps on the bench as positional stops, too. You mustn't like this jig, though, as you didn't paint it a couple colors :)
