Planing the vase smooth

Use a skew chisel to smooth the vase. Holding the tool with an underhand grip and with the lathe turned off, set the blade on the tool rest so that its long point is above the blank and its bevel is inclined in the direction of the cut; this is about 65° to the axis of the wood. Switch on the lathe and raise the handle slightly, bringing the cutting edge of the chisel into contact with the stock. Move the blade along the tool rest (above), letting its bevel rub; do not allow the heel or long point dig into the wood. The center of the cutting edge should produce a series of thin shavings.
