Peaks valley and a gorge.
Apr 8th, 2011 at 9:20pm
 
I feel safe turning this but I don't know how to get rid of the rings. When I scrap I seem to get deeper, so is there a way of attacking this without blowing the whole thing up?

Raise the speed up and use a very sharp bowl gouge.  I think you'll find that more speed will solve some of the problems that you are currently having.

Raising the speed is a good suggestion, especially on a piece like yours with the bark inclusion in the middle of the blank.  Increasing the speed is a lot like driving on a washboard road. After a certain speed, the ride smooths out because the tires are just hitting the high spots in the road, Same thing with a turning blank that has voids or other...speeding up the lathe smooths out the ride. 

I'd only suggest increasing the speed of the lathe if you're comfortable with a bowl gouge. If you're still figuring out how to use a bowl gouge, cranking up the speed can be dangerous.
