Drilling a long hole in 2x2x12" oak
I need to drill a 1/4" hole starting at the center of one long end of a 2x2x12" piece of oak and coming out at the center of the other end. I have a power drill and a long bit, but no drill press. How can I drill this hole and be certain that the bit emerges from the center at the other end of the oak? Another way to do this would be with a router and 2 pieces of 1x2x12 oak, rout out a semicircular groove in each piece and then glue the pieces together to make a 2x2x12. But I don't have a router either. Suggestions appreciated.
