I tried a hand plane on turnings back in my early days and again later just to see if it worked. On thick spindles it works. On long thin ones like this it chatters like the skew. You have.to counter the chatter with your hands but the weight of the plane meat you had to push too hard with your hand and it burns your fingers. My dad used to use a belt sander to do his rolling pins. He had a.shopsmith and its very hard to turn without chatter on that machine so he would sand and sand. One day he just pulled out the belt sander and had a dozen rolling pins done in nothing flat. Couldnt sand beads and coves tho.
