'nother turning question...
I've been working on my "hundred bowls", this is #4...
I've found that I'm basically using a (carbide-tipped) gouge from the "other side" of the lathe when hollowing, as shown...
Is this normal?
I'm often at a greater angle than diagrammed, but is seems to give the smoothest cuts, and I've not had a catch when using this technique. (Maybe I shouldn't have said that!
It almost appears easier to be left-handed when hollowing this way.
as an aside, any thoughts on reverse turning..?
...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?
