Thanks for all of the feedback. I needed to get some skew practice. After a while it turned into a nice little ornament! All my videos are me sharing my journey as I learn this art form. I am a student, not a teacher and in no way an expert. Please take time to read, learn, and study so that you can be safe! Thank you for joining me on this journey!

By: Andrew Whale
August 18, 2017 · 412 views

The Scary Skew and the Peeling Cut Hi This is my first attempt at using the skew chisel to do a peeling cut. I think the skew can be a little daunting, but I found the peeling cut fairly straight forward and it has now given me confidence to explore other cuts using this tool. Thanks to Brian Havens for the excellent advice and guidance on his YouTube channel which inspired me to give it a try. Brian's channel is at: https://www.youtube.com/user/BHavensWoodworker Also thanks to Paul Lockwood for his support and tipping me off to check Brian's channel out.

Practicing The Skew (Mini Box) - Episode 46 ·
By: Paul Lockwood
December 24, 2016 · 671 views

I was in the workshop cutting and gluing up for what will hopefully be the next project video. Whilst in there waiting I decided to grab a left over piece of walnut pen blank I used for a finial and have some fun with the skew. The final result is a mini lidded box less that 15mm wide sanded down to 600 grit. I used conventional steel drill bits as they would leave a nice cut where they finish. The images show a UK 1 coin to give an idea of the size.

Skew Types: Rectangular vs. oval vs. round ·
By: Brian Havens
June 24, 2016 · 5,789 views

Occasionally, I get asked about the difference between an oval skew and a rectangular (a.k.a. flat) skew. Each type of skew has its proponents, sometimes even to the point of disparaging the other, while other turners find little difference between the two. Then there is the lesser known round skew. Where does that fit in? My goal in this video is to take an unbiased look at skews with different cross sections, and how they behave differently in use. That way you can decide for yourself what type of skew—or skews—are best for you.

Point Cut with a Skew ·
By: Brian Havens
May 13, 2016 · 7,883 views

After making a case that there are essentially only three cuts with a skew (peeling,planing,and point), I take an in-depth view at the third cut: the 'point' cut. Although cutting on the long point of a skew is a bit of an odd-ball cut, as long as one takes into consideration its unusual bevel support, it is an easy and useful means of cutting across end grain in spindle work.

Making a Wooden Top: Skew Chisel Practice ·
By: Barry's Workshop
February 03, 2016 · 325 views

As a challenge to myself, I decided to see how fast I could make a wooden top using a skew chisel. No major catches, and it turned out OK. Not as good as if I had gone slower, but it also didn't go flying across the room. :) I made some others which were a bit faster, but they were quite rough in places.

Skew Grinds ·
By: Brian Havens
August 01, 2015 · 69,983 views

I was so exited to get back to the Skew when I made the 'Planing Cut with a Skew' video that I overlooked the whole issue of how to setup, grind, prepare the skew. All too often, though, when it comes to topics like this, the ultimate advice is that 'you just have to figure out what works for you'. Yet without enough information, how does one figure it out? Here I take a look at the different parameters of a skew chisel and how each affects its behavior. That way you can figure out how to setup your skew(s) for the type of work you do.

Planing Cut with a Skew ·
By: Brian Havens
June 19, 2015 · 7,894 views

Although the peeling cut with a skew is a valuable and efficient cut, it has limitations: only shallow tapers, beads, and coves are possible if we are to avoid cutting directly into end grain. As well, some soft woods simply do not respond well to the wide cutting angle of a peeling cut. At that point we have to revert back to the planing cut, but that is the cut that gives the skew its reputation for catches. Perhaps there is a way to apply the principle of the fulcrum to tame the skew? If you have used a skew at all, you are likely already familiar with the planing cut, but check out some alternative ways of making planing cuts as well, using the corners and leading with the long point.

http://www.AsWoodTurns.com Mastering the skew takes continuous practice to develop and maintain skills. Alan Lacer recommends turning an egg. To this, I'll add this ring holder for woodturning skew practice. In addition to convex turning from the egg, I need to practice concave turning with this wedding ring holder. It's a simple spindle project and only takes a few minutes to turn out a beautiful project from scrap wood. I gauge my success by how many spiral catches I experience and how smooth the concave curve it. Give it a go. A little skew practice goes a long way.

How I Sharpen the Alan Lacer Skew - Woodturning ·

October 06, 2011 · 8,309 views

Blog entry at http://paloarte.wordpress.com/2011/11/07/how-i-sharpen-the-skew-chisel/ In this video I'm showing the method that I use to sharpen the Alan Lacer woodturning skew. Basically, I mount a sticky back 220 grit abrasive; sandpaper; and move the bevel of the lightly, letting the bevel to rub against the sandpaper. A little darker (burned) colour on the sharpest edge of the skew indicates that it's ready to flip the tool over and work on the other side. This method can be dangerous, that is, sandpaper may come off the disk and the tool will catch. However, I think if you're an advanced woodturner or you know how and will a tool can break off, kick back or fly away, then you may be able to prevent this fatal accident. Anyhow, I don't recommend using this method, unless you're aware of circumstances.
