I made this for doing what you are talking about but I use it for drilling holes in metal or plastic pipe.

I like what you made WoodButch, and I may do the same or something similar. If I do, I'm going to turn it 90 depress on the table so the drill press column can't get in the way of the product to be drilled.

Progress, so far I'm happy. Thinking about painting it a gray, a color that won't show dust as much as black does.

I put stick on sandpaper on the inside edges to hold better.  Seems to work.

Didn't read all the responses, but the way I'd do this is to drill the hole first, then put the holes on lathe centers.
