Sometimes its necessary to drill multiple holes at an angle, and all the holes need to be the same. There's an easy way to set this up with a drill press and a few scraps of wood. Even if the accuracy is need.  Much of my work is done so it looks good. Hairsplitting accuracy isn't always needed, depending on the project. You want to create with out stress, and have fun doing it!

Here's the "rough" set up for drilling multiple angle holes. Placement will depend on hole location and angle. These pieces need to stay parallel.
Place the work piece in the jig and align front stop for hole location. Adjust the back rest for angle. Then recheck the front stop again.  When you're sure your setup is ready tighten the clamps and get started drillin. I used this setup for making a coat rack so the angle wasn't critical, but you could easily stick a protractor in there. 
There you are, nothin to it! If your concerned about the exit side of the hole, make sure you back up your work piece with a scrap piece. This prevents any chip out.
