My first attempt at woodturning of any kind. I turned the pizza slicer and ice cream scoop for the wife, one from walnut, one from maple. the stoppers are 3 maple and one walnut for stocking stuffers for family. Finished with at least 3 coats of wipe on poly, 4 or 5 on most. I didn’t think sharp chisels would make that much difference considering the speed the wood is turning at, but boy was I wrong! after sharpening them, it made all the difference in the world! thanks for looking and any and all advice and comments are welcome.
as a side note, I have never been so frustrated with a tool as I was with the skew. wanted to pull my hair out after working with that thing! think I’m finally getting the hang of it though.
