off centre turning

It has been a very long, very very long time since I last came and join you here. I shall not list the problems which prevented me from coming.
Lately a friend of mine visited me in my workshop while I was turning an off centre box in purple hearth . He shot some pieces of film with his photo camera, therefore quite a number of steps are missing.

Il vostro video molto interessante. Grazie.

No, I really do not speak any Italian but enjoy learning phrases in different languages. Is that a special type of chuck that allows off center turning?

And welcome back.

Yes indeed, I am using the Escoulen chuck . The one you see is the #1

Thank you Ron, and thank you to for having transferred the thread at the right place. I was not aware of the existence of this very interesting part of the forum. That shows you for how long Ive been away

I would think that the type of chuck would not be as important for this type of turning as the preparation of the blank. The blank would need to be started between centers and a ball turned on the tail stock end. Then the blank is reversed and the ball mounted in the chuck. I had not considered a collet type chuck which would work well, however a four jaw chuck will also work. The "Naked Lady" finials that I did and asked for design help on here were turned in this manner.

Indeed Paul you can turn off centre with a normal chuck, or even between centre.  But what I appreciate with the Escoulen chuck is that you can position your wood at the exact angle you desire.  This is more difficult with a normal chuck.
In addition, when I turn an expensive wood, I hate to throw away part of it, in your example the sphere you turn as a spigot for the chuck.
