Drill Chuck for my Lathe

Online Bear
>I'm trying to turn one of Bill Kaufman's birdhouses for a little neighborhood friend's birthday present. It calls for using a 2+inch forstner bit in a chuck on the lathe. Does anyone have suggestions on what kind of chuck to get? There are so many options online I need some help!

I have a Jet Mini-Lathe model 1014. The tailstock is 2MT.

Also any information on do's and don't while drilling on the lathe are appreciated.
