You can also get some threaded rod, place it into the drill, and then add a nut and washer to each end of the cork to hold the cork while shaping the grip. As you mount the cork to the threaded rod, put some glue on the cork faces to glue the grip together and when you are finished shaping it, let it set a while for the glue to set up and dry. Then ream the center of the grip to fit the blank and glue it on.

Either this method or the one JimW wrote about works well, and neither is expensive either.
