Get the book Fixtures and Chucks for Woodturning. It shows how to make several types. The book shows how to make these type of fixtures yourself. It's not a book on a lot of store bought chucks but is full of instructions to make these things for your lathe. I find it a great resource for making my own stuff & it covers many ways of attaching your turnings to the lathe.
Just because you can, doesn't always mean you should!
