Recommendation on Technique to drill hole in corners of a shelf.

Have a fixed shelf. Against the wall. I would like to run a wire down the back side. If I could drill a small hole in the back corner of the shelf at each level of shelf, I could design my project for lighting it.

Is there a way to drill way back in the corner?

If you implement your idea, an item placed on the shelf and pushed against the wire could kink the wire and may cause it to fail.

As an alternative, how about attaching a 1/4 in. White Polyethylene Coaxial Staple near the back corner of each shelf for the wire.

BTFC wins with the DeWalt link on Amazon. I just ordered one and I don't have a shelf I want a hole in the corner of - right now! But that's awesome, and will be in my tool box for future use! Thanks!

Note that the Dewalt flexible shaft is set up to use hex shaft items such as:

The Ryobi model uses a traditional drill chuck.

The flex shaft allows the hole to be closer to the corner

Thanks for those great links. That will take care of 2 Christmas presents. No, 3, including myself.

So does the hex head in lieu of a chuck.

Since we're a techie group, how about a laser that bends 90 deg?
