Default Sunday at the movies--beginner turning acrylic

Acrylic pen--beginning tutorial - YouTube

This will be the final Sunday night at the movies. I strongly recommend using the "full screen" feature on YouTube--bottom right corner of "picture tube"--looks like [brackets].

It will be replaced by " Free Tutorial" series, which will start in January. These vids will be produced when we see a topic that could use some clarification (AND I feel qualified to make a worthwhile video).

I am very interested in comments about this last video--there is a section on "listening" to your turning, as well as a few instances of text inserted to try to emphasize some points. Did it work?? Do you feel you (or the "average viewer" if you already know all this) learned more from this format?

The new series will be more of a "this is what we are going to do, this is what we are doing, this is what we did" format. An attempt to be more of a tutorial.

Operative word is probably "attempt" ---only time will tell,

That is a nice video, the sounds section at the end added a lot. I was waiting for the square-to-round-in-two-fast-passes-with-a-skew that wowed everyone at the first MPG. You changed my world with that demonstration.

The gouge you used on the first on seems to have several sharpening problems going on with it, was that done that way to show the center vs side issue?

I had to look to find a 3/8" gouge, Ed.

Haven't used one in at least 5 years. That one had a fingernail grind, I used it for deep coves, in peppermills. So, I blunted it and figured it would do, for the purpose at hand.

Nice job! I've experienced everything you talk about, but never put it to words.

Thanks Ed. I think the added text and the sound of the chatter was just fine.

Thanks for this video Ed. I felt as if you were teaching me one on one; that may be since acrylics have really sparked my interest lately and that I have had many of the issues you mentioned. Thanks again, and I look forward to the new year with new "tutorials".

Thanks for what you do!
