Making sizing cuts

Once the lower pommel sections of the four posts are done, turn to the vase sections. Each post has three vase segments: one at the top of the pommel section and two more above it. Although the bottommost one is the widest and the next one up is longest, the vases are otherwise identical and have similar contours. They also feature a tenon at the bottom end and a matching mortise at the top. To produce a vase, turn the segment into a cylinder (page 53), then make a series of sizing cuts with a parting tool. Holding the parting tool with an underhand grip edge-up on the tool rest, raise the handle slightly so the blade cuts into the cylinder. Continue to raise the handle until the cut reaches the required depth (left). Each cut should penetrate to the finished diameter of the post at that point; check your progress with calipers periodically. Twist the tool slightly from side to side as you make the cut to minimize friction and to prevent the blade from jamming.
