The live center should work fine.
The chuck you show is really a metal working chuck and the jaws are independent, not scroll.
My chucks are Nova and the G3 will work well ($99), you will need the proper insert.
There are a lot of chuck brands which are good and have chucks in the $100 range, most all will require the proper insert.
I have no idea of the quality but here is a Grizzly with the proper jaw profile for gripping wood.
