If you just can’t wait, then use 5 minute epoxy. Clamp a waste block to your piece and wait about 15 minutes and you are good to go. No need to clamp between centers use any kind of clamp to hold the block to the blank, then screw your block onto the lathe. I use scraps of 2X to make waste blocks and tape my blank to it with turners tape. It is not the foam double sided tape, it’s made for turning and as long as the surfaces are flat, it will hold. Have to pry pieces apart with a chisel. Even rough pieces like Mr. Unix showed need to have the bottom flattend to install on the lathe or screw it to a face plate, even glue wont hold if the mating faces are not flat together. And yes, I do use turners tape to hold cookies for turning.
