I do all my thru drilling without a lathe. Takes a bit of practice to get the feel of it. The key is learning how to let the plug spin in your hand to be sure that the plug/drill are centered on each other. Practice on some cheap dowel form Home Depot. You'll get the hang of it...

You might check out and go to their Lure Building forum. I hear a few good builders hang out there
