I love the woodturning community mostly happy to help each other and pass on contacts and info. No nastiness like other trades.
One of the tricky parts of these oak columns is the thin 10mm thick square at the top. which is also a smaller section than the largest turned section. Cutting these means you can’t cut aggressively. The Skew must be held in exactly the correct angle and is slightly off from vertical so the back edge doesn’t catch the square. You must not put pressure on the bevel or the tool will be pushed away by the squares or worse still the square being endgrain will disintegrate and cut with the point only with a very light cut to finish. It looks simple but far from it. Would be a lot easier if they didn’t need to be straight cut. #woodturner#woodturning#advancedtechnique#handmadeisbest#bespokeorder

Just starting the next batch of these Oak columns, a slow light final cut makes sure there is no tear out. This video is another one showing the benefit of traditional tools and good presentation. Check out the crisp small details, They give by far the best finish off the tool. I’ve 95 of these to do with some tricky and small details so quite time consuming but will be in 3or 4 batches so not too bad. You might remember The samples were turned with feet attached but there is no need for that so I’ll be making them separate and it makes them slightly easier. #handmadeisbetter#woodturning#oak#bespokeorder#production#woodturner
