Guest Blogger Gerry Felix pt.2

Spent the majority of the day on the lathe, concentrating on the skew and spindle gouge. Was able to occasionally make skew passes that were clean, requiring no sanding. Beads and coves were OK, as well.
Reminded that sharpening is equally important as application. Mistakes are very often caused by dull turning tools rather than technique. We made many trips to the water stones to keep clean edges on the skew chisels. Rocker assembly soon the pieces are about finished.
