>Hello everyone!! When turniing thin walled vessels(1/16"t + or -)I am having trouble with the bowls coming out of round as I hollow them out. This usually happens when the walls are under 1/4" thick. When this happens, I have been going back and truing up the outside and then returning to the inside. This is with KD wood. Any hints, tips, strategies to deal with this? Thanks in advance.
