If you want to do it simpler, just dial in the face, clamp cylinder with small aluminum blocks, 4 jaw it for more holding area. Saves building a fixture.

3 jaw reverse step jaws chuck should work fine. I occasionally use the one at work to do something round. mainly just truing a face. Same thing as decking a cylinder though. Not like you are trying to dig into it. Just taking a mil or two off.
