I’m learning to use my father’s lathe and this Easter Egg was a fun skill-building project. It’s made from a slice of red cedar and is finished with Hut Crystal Coat. I turned it using a roughing gouge and a skew.

I have a question for the woodturners out there. The only problem I had is the gouge would catch and stop the workpiece, then the drive center would basically drill a hole in the wood instead of grabbing it. Is this a normal thing or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks everyone and Happy Easter! Steve…

Nice job Steve, if you are getting any catches then you have to go really work on rubbing the bevel.
cheers

Thanks everyone! I will have to look up info on rubbing the bevel Pete! I’m using my father’s 30 year old turning tools and they are not very sharp, so I think that may be making things a little more difficult too.
