Farside Couterbore / Countersink

Hi OnShapers,

I'm new to OnShape and looking at how it will compare to our current CAD / CAE tools. I'm using it to create a number of existing components and seeing how quickly I can pick up the modelling conventions. 

I'm getting on ok but have come stuck when trying to model a far side counterbore. I can't find a tool for this or an option within the hole tool and wondered if anyone else has a better solution that a counterbore / countersink hole and additional feature for the farside portion of the hole?

    Ace thanks for the tip!

    Unfortunately on this occasion the near and farside counterbores are different sizes so need two separate features but I can see this tip saving me time in the future :)

    I like the fact features are not limited to sketches only on a single plane but can reference multiple sketches on different planes...
