    you will need a hole saw that is 3″ in diameter and an extension bit that is about 8″ or more long. Hope that helps.

    Help please! How do I drill a three inch hole into a block of wood to a depth of 10 inches. The block of wood is 18 inches wide and 24 inches tall?

        A 3″ self feed bit and an extension to match. May have to go to plumbing or electrical supply house to find one locally. Requires a heavy duty 1/2″ drill with a long accessory handle attached. Use carefully. This can hurt you. A drill press would work and be safer if the piece can be placed under it.
