Re: humbling experience with skew

Thanks one an all!

I got it right by more careful sharpening, including power honing using an MDF disk charged with that grey stainless steel stuff. Apparently, the piece of hard maple I was working on needed an especially sharp skew. I've been getting away with a slightly less sharp tool because most of the wood that I turn is softer.
