I’ve been trying to improve my turning skills. I turned this Walnut/Maple Bangle, and my wife claimed it. It actually turned out better than I expected – although far from perfect. My first two attempts were epic failures. On the first two attempts I turned through the end grain, which meant that when I turned it around and tried to chuck it up, the grain was running across the bangle and it split when I added a little pressure from the chuck in expansion mode. I assume that, since the 3rd attempt worked, that you have to cut through the long grain (grain runs around the bangle). Does this make sense to anyone?
Any comments or suggestions are appreciated.
