This demonstration will focus on manipulating the log in order to adjust the grain direction to accentuate the design patterns of the form. I will use my Signature gouge in many different directions, including backward slicing and shear-scraping cuts to refine the exterior. This will be followed by using my home-made hollowing tools to gut and refine the interior. And finally, reverse the form using a jam chuck to finish off the base.
