If you don’t want to buy a chuck…easiest is to cut circles out of junk wood….screw your faceplate on to them….then either glue or double sided tape them to your blank. You can also (if your blank is wide enough) screw the face plate to your blank….turn it…then use a parting tool to cut it off the face plate.
