bottle stoppers

Laff in OKC
>I'm trying to turn bottle stoppers drilled for a 3/8 dowel. I cut the dowel long enough to glue in, leave room for a cork, and enough to be held in a Jacob's drill chuck. I realize that my touch is still very heavy, but I'm tired of twisting off the dowel. Does anyone have an idea for a mandrel or jig to help with this?
