New video on skew practice

This is a short video on using the toe down position of the skew plus a little exercise I do to improve my skew usage. Hope it helps someone.

John, thank you for taking the time to make this video. I'm going to give it a try, as my skew technique is less than satisfactory. This is a great video and it is much appreciated. I thank you again good sir.

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

Ken took the words out of my mouth ... I really have to practice skew technique, if only to build up my confidence using the tool. Thanks again for this and all the other videos you've made & shared with us.

I do the majority of my mushroom work with three different skews ground to varying angles, absolutely my most versatile tool on the bench. Thanks for the great video, good job.

Very good video John.
Wish I had seen it a few years ago. I gave up on what I was told by some experienced turners and always hold the tool at 90* and gently pushed it into the wood for v grooves.

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. Benjamin Franklin

Anybody can become a woodworker, but only a Craftsmen can hide his mistakes!
