I'll do the same thing with the long bit, drill from both ends until the holes meet. The main thing to watch when you mount the plug on the lathe is that the place you want the hole to start should...

2. Make sure the drill bit is secure in the plug, then turn the lathe on and slowly crank the handle to move the drill into the plug. Note, the plug is turning, the drill bit is stationary:
