The Brad point bit with drill is the way to go.

Similar to Barry’s I’m sure, this is the template I used to drill all the dog holes in my 21st Century Workbench. I used scrap piece of 2” Ash and glued a 90d. fence on it for edge referencing. I also used a 1/2” hammer drill set to drill mode. NOTE—Do NOT forget to use a back plate to stop tear out on the exit side.
