I am practicing on making some silhouette long stem wine glasses. Trying to get the stem right. I am still relatively new at turning and it is hard for me to take a pass from one end to the other in one smooth continuous flow especially when it curves. I have a 1/2” flat skew with a slight radius and I usually end up making a few passes scraping to get the ripples out. I have been practicing with my 1” skew lately and quite often I can make a pass the full length of a roughed out blank without catching. They say practice makes perfect but the lied bout the skew. Haaa Haaa
I want to make a set for my niece’s wedding later this year so I decided to take some of the many smaller cedar limbs I recovered from the tree that fell on my house several years ago and practice. My wife doesn’t want to finish anything I make of cedar as she likes the smell so I will finish very few things made of cedar.
Any advice appreciated.
incedently if you didn’t notice I made from cedar.
