If I could give you one piece of advise, it would have 2 parts.

#1. Hide the skew until your comfertable turning and know the tools you have.

#2. Buy a spindle roughing gouge. It's a U shaped tool that is pretty versatile. It's ment to take square or rough stock and quickly get it rounded out. Once you get good with it, you can shape things and get a pretty good finish with it.

The parting tool you have it ment to part the wood into 2 pieces. Basically it cuts the stock in two. It's good for cutting straight and angled edges into the wood.

Turning is a good part of woodworking to get into. It's alot of fun and you will be surprised what nasty looking pieces of wood can turn into. With a little foresight, it can be pretty safe.
