Countersunk-bored holes

Status: New Idea

There's a fifth type of hole which is sometimes used in woodwork. It's a countersunk-bored hole. You simply use the coutersink bit to bored down into the wood after coutersinking the hole. It's used when hiding screw heads with wooden plugs. It's similar to a counter-bored hole feature except that instead of a flat bottom for the boring, it's an angled bottom, the same angle as countersinking.

We also use a double counterbore. Same idea, just replace the csink with a cbore. The extra cbore at the top is a larger diameter than he the lower cbore.  Currently we have to add a flat bottom hole or simple circular extrusion to simulate the extra larger cbore at the top. Doesn't work well with holenotes.
