    A hole saw. The drill bit fits into a normal power drill, and can cut a hole of a specific size depending on the size of the bit you get.

    If by hand tool, you mean unpowered, then I’d use a brace and bit to drill a starter hole inside the hole needed, then follow up with a keyhole or compass saw (which is a hand saw with a narrow pointed blade) to cut the hole out.

    if it were me, I’d use a drill to start a pilot hole then a jigsaw to cut the hole you have pre- marked. go slow and steady. another tip would be to put tape around the edge of the hole you want to cut to help prevent chipping of the particle board.
