This technique is important because it leaves smooth end-grain surfaces requiring no sanding — surfaces you can’t achieve with any scraping method I’ve ever tried. To achieve the very best end-grain surfaces, you should rough in the shape with several relatively heavy passes, then finish up with one or two light passes with your skew.

It’s important that the hand/tool alignment remain constant as you work your way along a turned part. If you start moving your arms to slide the tool toward you and to push it from you, you’ll lose the alignment of the bevel, cutting edge and part that is necessary for working at the lathe. So instead of moving my arms and hands, I move my upper body. It probably looks a little goofy (I try to keep the door to my shop closed) but it’s an effective way of holding my gouge PHOTO 7 When you’re moving your roughing gouge along your tool rest, it’s improtant to maintain a consistent hand/tool/work alignment throughout each pass.

In the past, I used to squeeze the sandwiches together in the vise, then hold the sandwiches together with clamps or U-bolts (note the U-bolt holes in the forms). Now I have lots of extra benches with good vises, so I just leave the sandwiches in the vises until the bends are set. I allow a minimun of one week for setting. My wife had recently purchased a french fryer at a garage sale for next to nothing and I decided it could be my source of steam. For a steam chamber, I bought a 48" length of 4" PVC.
