For wood like this I wet with mineral oil then I turn it with a high speed steel round nose scraper sharpened to leave a wire edge. The scraper is 1” wide and either 5/8 or 3/4” thick. Keep your tool rest close to avoide vibration and turn just slightly below center. Take very fine cuts and make sure you keep enough oil on it to ensure you are not turning dry wood where the tear out is. Wet sand with mineral oil as well.
