Piece Forstner

Piece Forstner
What drill but should I use to bore a wide hole deep into a thick piece of wood. I am unable to use a press.?

I'm trying to drill about a 2 inch wide hole in the top of a standing pole. I can't use a press in this application. I had hoped to use a Forstner bit, but apparently they really need a press. I'm currently using a 1 inch paddle bit, but I'm not sure if this is the best way to go.
Responding to the suggestion to quit trying to drill, that's a misunderstanding about why I'm drilling. This is not to attach something else, and not relevant to the life of the wood. It is a wide deep hole that I want.
Has anyone actually found a 2" spade big? I haven't been able to come across one.

Use a 2" spade bit.
