Punch a 2¾" hole in a piece of 1/2" MDF or plywood with a hole saw to make the template.
Use a 1/2" plunge router bit and a 5/8" bushing to follow the template and route the hole to desired depth.
A flush trim router bit with a shank mounted bearing can get a bit dicey as the entire cutting length of those bits must be exposed before the bearing can provide any guidance. Depending on the depth of the hole, you may need two or more of different cutting lengths to accomplish the job.
