I use a large roughing gouge to do exactly that, rough out my blanks. Light passes. Works wonders. If I get to aggressive, it will chatter. It's the blank talking to me, saying patients grasshopper. I shape with a skew, and finish with a small carbide skew.

Default Found the cause of the dimples!

I was taking a break and was looking for info on sanding and finishing acrylics and synthetics. I stumbled onto Exotic Blanks and found a video on turning acrylic. Ed showed how this hiccup happened- I found that I had pushed the gouge into the blank for some unknown reason. He showed the difference in pushing the gouge into the blank and cutting along the long side of the blank.
