If I were cutting some small parts like that, I would make 4 sticks of that thickness but considerably wider. I would sandwich the four thin pieces between two 3/4 inch blocks of wood and clamp all of that to a drill press table. First drill the inside hole, then using a holesaw type bit cut the outside.
The reason I would clamp the thinner pieces between the 3/4 inch pieces would be to keep the thinner stock from being destroyed when drilling. I hope this makes sense.
