I just started ruffing out my blanks using a parting tool.It seems like i can ruff them out in no time doing it this way. Is this something others are doing or am i nuts? The birch one on the lathe only took me about 2 minutes to get it to that point as the pic shows. The cherry one(the biggest with the hole) took a little longer,but the oak was about the same as the birch. Should i just keep doing them this way or should i stop as it could be dangerous?
Thanks as always.
