Bill, thanks for that book link, it will be very helpful. I have more rudimentary books, and more advanced books, but the Taunton one will provide “missing links.” I found one more video that I think is very useful for a new turner. I almost didn’t click on the link because it’s from a commercial entity (Craft Supplies), but it is a very organized, thorough presentation on cutting beads, coves, ogees and chamfers using mostly a skew, accompanied by spindle gouge and parting tool. Mr. Batty provides details that I haven’t found in any other videos, and helps me remember what I learned when taking a 2-day course with Bonnie Klein a few years ago.
