Cork rod grips

I am thinking about custom building a rod for myself and I was wondering if anyone can advise me the best way to construct and turn/shape the cork grip. I thought that I could maybe somehow use my electric drill to spin the rod but I need a method of holding the rod whilst it spins and also a method of safely holding the blank in the drill chuck. Does anyone know how this can be done. As this may be a one off, I didn't want to buy a lot of expensive tools and jigs. Thanks.
