Example text

To bring the bevel of your roughing gouge to rest on the as-yet-notformed cylinder, simply lay the heel of the bevel on the spinning work (it will bounce a little on the square corners of your turning blank) and gently pull the tool toward you as you simultaneously raise the tool’s handle. The cutting edge barely engages the work and sends a jet of chips into the air. This tool/work engagement should be done gently. There’s no reason to push the tool into the work in an effort to make it cut. You control the cutting action by raising and lowering the handle a little.

As you can see, there is more than enough thickness in the finial section to yield the elements of the finial. gouge, but even a careful use of a roughing gouge leaves behind minor surface irregularities. There are only two ways to clean up these irregularities: sanding and/or skew planing. Skew planing is just what it sounds like. It's the practice of using a skew to smooth a turned part by the removal of cleansing shavings. For many years, I’ve done my turning with only two skews, both of which are rectangular in cross section, but at the urging of friends, I recently added an oval skew to my tool kit for the specific purpose of planing and I like the way it performs.

Different turners use different vocabularies to denote their lists of basic shapes. My list is as follows: end-grain parings, tapers, flats, beads and coves. Every turning I’ve ever created was made up of some combination of these elements. The vase under the arm of a New Lebanon chair, for example, consists of a half bead at the base with a taper above the vase’s swelling and a square shoulder at the base of the tenon on the top of the vase. So, when I’m turning this vase, I don’t think vase and then tenon.
