Another way to start these is without a spur drive.  Knock out the point of the live center and trap it corner to corner between the MT#2 in the spindle and the opening in the live center.  That way you know it is centered.

Never thought of that one Jim, though, I couldn't take off much at a time.... It would slip.

Depends on how hard you crank the tailstock. Grin Grin  I've done a few this way.  You only need to turn like this until you make your tenon.  Then I use a parting tool on the other end just to get a center point for the tailstock when I reverse it in the chuck.

Was the tool you were using a flute less gouge?

Yes, for the clean up cuts. You can get a very high shear angle with it, more so than most gouges, and you don't have to drop your handle all the way to the floor to get that high angle.

I second that.. Great video Reed.. Now I know what I am going to try and do tomorrow!

Also what was that tool you were doing the finishing cuts on the outside with?

Well I had a go and made a small cube bowl turned on the bias this afternoon.. Turned out OK. It was only a 4" cube and was turned as an experiment so I never bothered to sand or finish. Quite interesting though and I will definitely try this again with a larger lump of wood. Thanks for the inspirational video Reed! This is made from a piece of cordia branchwood
