With the hope that everyone is doing well and has a bit more time to turn these days has anyone started a new style of project or new technique"
As we were discussing in the Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register, everyone learns in a different way and at a different pace. Have you been practicing what you know, building your inventory or have you taken up something new?
I haven't been able to turn much of anything. I have too many outdoor, weather sensitive projects to get done before the sustained heat arrives.

Some day, I need to learn to use the skew chisel.... I do a better and cleaner cut using a peeling cut than I do a more standard cut. Harumpfh!

I know how to use it, I know how it cuts, I just don't like using one.
No one knows if you used a gouge, a skew or sandpaper to get to the final product.
Do what works for you.

Here is my first basket illusion piece, turned during Covid, although I have been learning about how to do this for quite some time.  Lots learned on the first one.  More to come.

That's a pretty good looking vase there.  Personally I've gotten pretty good at gluing up something for a hollow turning and cutting it off from the inside while trying to hollow it out.  They say 3d time is a charm, well I'm past that point already.  The cutoffs turn into nice saucers though.

Certainly building my inventory for my fall show...additionally, I'm working on improving my 'bead' work on my bowls.  Specifically...working with my detail gouge...I'm getting better but it's still a work in progress.

Admittedly not a big fan of the basket illusion style but I have to say that looks very good. From the photo it looks like very clean work and the design fits the piece.  Thumbs Up

What I think is so nice about it is that you got the colors very right.

It looks like a 100yr. old basket. Smiley Smiley

I identified what I refer to as a 'sort of a' problem when learning how to use the skew.  Like Microsoft's Excel...if you have to use it regularly for your job you inherently get better at it.  Once I found a few nick-knack items I could turn to sell at my fall show I became better much faster with the skew.  Nothing quite like repetition to create good skills and build muscle memory.

As I said, I know how to use it, I know how it cuts, I just don't like using one.

My main sticking point is that the tool is quite unforgiving, which is due to the 'design" of the tool.

My position is that I can achieve the same level of cut and finish with a detail gouge which is far more forgiving.

I won't say never but as of now I have no plans to pick up a skew.
