I use a small.Sorby spindle gouge and/or my 1/4"skew. These are small.tools but they dont need to be. When I demo I use my Thompson 3 /8"detail gouge. I use a Vicmarc 120 chucks with 1" jaws and hold a 1" or 3/4" piece about 6" long. I start the turning using the tailstock but after I get the first element roughed I remove it and use my fingers as a steady.
