I saw a video of a german turner turning a christmas tree with a modified skew chissle a few years ago.  He would curl up layer after llayer getting larger and larger just like this guy does.  Not being any good with a straight skew I did want to try a modified one.

I've been looking for that video as well, I'm also not good (to say the least) with a skew.

I saw a tool in  a British  woodturning magazine a few  years ago  that was made for  doing  just  those trees.  kind of a modified skew with a  hook at the end.  I  know exactly  where the  magazine is and was trying to  talk  Jr.  into getting  me one when  he was there this Summer.
