Pictures will help. Depending upon how deep you have gotten with your hollowing, one thing I have done is drill a hole on the hollowed side that is large enough for one of your jaws to sit in in expansion mode and use the tail stock for extra safety as you make a new tenon or recess. You can just put it between centers too but this approach may be a little more steady if you have a large enough Forstner bit or small enough jaws and you can find the center well enough to drill a well centered hole.
