Re: humbling experience with skew

I have had that happen on curly maple and birdseye maple but not usually on straight grain stuff. I think what happens is it chips out. I don't get a catch it just bounces the skew. When I get wood like that I use a spindle gouge to turn it. The rounded edge somehow solves the problem of those little chips outs.
