Another skew practice video

This is what I do to warm up when I haven't been turning with the skew for awhile.

Great vid, John. You and I have almost identical grip/technique, on the skew.

Harrison, at your service!

Another great video John. What is the height of your tool rest in relation to the stock when you are cutting these barrels, beads, balls and coves? Is your chisel contacting the stock above the center of rotation or higher?
Thanks again for posting this one.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Yea that's probably something I should have mentioned. When I'm just using the skew I raise the tool rest. I prefer cutting at about 10:30 to 11 oclock. I don't always to that because I will often be switching back and forth between spindle gouge and skew.
I base tool rest height no just on where it cuts on the piece but how the tool contacts my body. I do as much turning as I can using my body to control the handle rather than just my hands. In order to do this really well the relationship between the cut, the tool rest and where the tool hits your body is important. Consequently I adjust the tool rest height a lot.
