I made these to help with turning bowls. The foam plate is used to help hold the bowl while finishing off the bottom. The foam is attached with spray adhesive. The dowel is used to help secure the bowl when turning segmented bowls so the tenon doesn’t come off which does at times with some types of wood.

No problem, I got the idea from the guys at my woodworking club shop.

I may have to add that to the front of the Longworth chuck I am going to make with my CNC machine one of these days. I often use some tool chest drawer liner material between a bowl and the Cole chuck to prevent the chuck from marring the rim. This might be easier.
