60 to 100 grit should do fine. If you don’t have a drill press I would recommend a brad point drill bit. Less chance of it walking on start up. If you do decide to use a forstner freehand with a drill be sure to put good pressure down when starting to prevent it from wondering. Practice on some scrap. This will also let you get your depth dialed in. I put a cheap stop collar on to control my depth.
