    Well, I do believe this might just work. Found a scrap of maple and gave it a test.

    Drilled out the center with a spade bit then Went part way down from the top with a router collar.

    Then took it out, put it in a vise and cleared out from the other end with a bottom bearing bit.

    A little burning on the corners, but it's hidden so not a huge deal.

    Gave it a half hearted attempt to square it up and I'll be darned if it didn't clear it out pretty easy.

    I think this will work.

    That looks like it works pretty darned well.
