How to graft fruit trees and grapes

I have a few fruit trees and vines that I would like to graft.
At present, I want to graft a cutting of a good seedless grape to the stock of a sweet grape that has seeds.
Knowing very little of the subject, I was going to take a few cuttings (old cane or new?)and attempt a graft. I planned to cut the stock back to approx 8" above ground and seal off where I made the cut with a very soft plumber"s putty.
Using drill bits about the size of the cuttings, I had planned to drill several holes in the stock and insert the tight fitting vines into holes and seal with putty as well.
Am I anywhere close?
Should I wait until the leaves fall or while the cuttings are green?
If I am all wet, then please tell me how it should be done. Tom
