Unless you have a huge supply of free wood, you are better off to use one of the other methods for drilling your blanks. If you get a drill press, you’ll find other uses for it and it is a good shop tool investment. If you want to use your lathe for drilling, you will need a Jacob’s chuck for the tailstock and a chuck and jaws for the headstock. As you get into turning, you’ll find lots of uses for the chucks… making bowls, turned boxes, ornaments, etc.
