I’ve looked over the list of items needed and I don’t see anything to assist in drilling the holes into the blanks.

You need a jig to hold the blank in place on your drill press. Of course, this implies that you have a drill press.

I’ve discovered that I can also drill the hole with my lathe. I mount a Jacobs chuck with the bit on the tail stock and I mount the blank into a conventional lathe chuck. It works quite well.
