Hi Mark

You are certainly better with a lathe than I am. Early in the video it looked kind of spooky with all that extra stuff flying around! I liked the annotations, too.

Coming along nicely now Mark. Two good decisions you made firstly cutting the top branches off and secondly not throwing it in the fire like I would have. Please explain what is a corkscrew? I think you now have a lot of sandpapering ahead.

Your video skills are developing. Felt like I was cutting it with you.

Thank you, thank you, and, also, thank you.
Bob, What I call a corkscrew is that thing you get in the wood as the tool advances, skips over a hard spot (or cuts air) and comes down slightly to the side. If you’ve ever done any spindle turning, you’ll recognize that, when turning something thin, you sometimes have to keep pressure on the far side of the piece with your free hand. Otherwise, you get a “corkscrew”, or, sometimes, it presents as chatter. There you go. It’s an elongated chatter.
