Gerry, I suspect I m headed in your direction on the oval skew.

Jamie … I have done almost 800 pens for the Freedom Pens project. The first 50 or so were done with a roughing gouge and the oval skew. A little more than three years ago, I switched to the flat skew and use it for both roughing and finish cuts on pens. I use Lacer’s big skew (1-3/8” wide and 3/8” thick) to do pens, and his smaller skew (5/8” wide and 3/8”thick) for smaller stuff. It just takes practice.
