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…
