( Use a drill press with a hole saw and remove the drill bit in the center and slowly feed into the wood ) Great advise, NOT !

Do it all the time on my DP. With a sacrificial piece of wood underneath and both securely clamped to the table and the table securely locked in position.

What’s the problem?

Depending on how nice a finish I want on the edge without having to sand it and risk it then being under size in that case I use a router with a circle jig, and lean towards that method if I want a nice edge.
