If I could offer you an air operated, visually guided drilling machine, would it be a benefit to you ?
It drills upwards.

When you say it drills upwards, how do you go about positioning the many locations needed for internal cuts with accurracy or indeed comfort if you have a lot to do?

Well it's quite a specialised machine which projects a magnified image on to a screen with target grid.
Line up hole position on target, press pedal and Bobs your top kitchen manufacturer.....
Pictures ain't the best but.....

looks rather intriguing, in a very 50's scifi kind of way. Are you going to do a vid of it running? would be cool to see

Spot on that man =D>
Do you want it?
I'm thinking it would make a great drilling machine or even (if adapted with the right cutters) a router table?
