Mastering the skew takes continuous practice to develop and maintain skills. Alan Lacer recommends turning an egg. To this, I’ll add this ring holder for woodturning skew practice.
In addition to convex turning from the egg, I need to practice concave turning with this wedding ring holder. It’s a simple spindle project and only takes a few minutes to turn out a beautiful project from scrap wood.
I gauge my success by how many spiral catches I experience and how smooth the concave curve it.
Give it a go. A little skew practice goes a long way.
