Mounting Wood on a Lathe particularly for small opening vessels

Wanted to share an article that covers the mounting methods of wood blanks on a lathe that I wrote. Alot of the mounting methods are pretty straight forward stuff, however I also discuss the method I use for mounting blanks intended for small opening vessels. Particularly natural edge vessels. Currently I shoot for openings around 10% of the vessel diameter so that poses some mounting challenges.
