I forgot to mention. A tenon for turning should be short enough that the wood tenon does not bottom out in the chuck and the T portion of the tenon should sit on the face of the jaws. This keeps the wood from rocking and coming loose. If you just grip a straight tenon the vibrations from turning the wood can make the chuck lose it's grip and the piece will go flying. Not fun.
