+1 on using something other than a spade bit. It will be easier to get a straight hole with a twist or auger bit because the bit itself helps keep it heading in a straight line. The long flutes will also help clear the chips for a easier time at it. Also, as John mentioned, use the smallest bit you can. No point in removing any more wood than needed. I think that Home Depot sells an 18” drill bit extender by Milwaukee but it may require 1/4” hex bits. I am sure that you can find an extension to fit whatever bit you use if you look around.
