Wood Turning

a skewed Skew

Carl, the lines (grooves) you see are made by me using either my 3/4″ Sorby or my 1.1/4″ sorby. The tool rest is nick free and the tools are as sharp as I can make them. Sometimes I can turn a piece of 1.1/4 sq x 8″ pine (practice) without the grooves. Your thoughts and what I am doing wrong would be appreciated. I have watched you, bobham5, Capt Eddie, and others and no one has ever mentioned “chatter” when cutting.

Thanks
Paul
