Shape the bulk of the egg shape , do two at one time if you have the space on the lathe, leaving just a small amount at the ends (~1/4”), and finish sand, then take a fine toothed saw and cut it off. Use an oscillating sander to smooth the rest of the ends. They turn out well for me using this method.

I hope this helps. Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions. I’m sure others have their ideas/methods as well which may work out better.
