Thanks all. I looked at a hole saw, the problem is that the material is 4” thick. I couldn’t find a hole saw that was deep enough. The larger press worked, but even on the lowest speed setting it hung up on occasion. After about 32” of hardwood, I could tell the bit was dull. Now for the next task of trying to sharpen a forstner bit.

I’ll post some pics when complete. Thanks again for the feedback.
