2012 TDPRI Tele Build Challenge - Headstock and Inlays

Today, I worked on the neck. First I lined up holes for the tuning pegs. I marked off the placement for each hole on both sides.

From the back I used a 10 mm bit and from the top I used a 9 mm bit. The holes are are not perfect - not even close. I have a real problem with lining up the drill press for precise holes. This is, however, closer than I've done on  recent neck builds. 

This issue has popped up again with the inlays. My mistakes are obvious when the center line is intake. I'll wait to see how this looks after I radius the fretboard.
