Yep, sharp skew. I have my students set their tool rest 2/3's of the way up, so the skew is riding on the top edge. Lot less likely to have a catch this way. I like about a 45 degree angle and cut. Now when entering, DO NOT start at the end of the blank. About 1/3 of the way in start the skew and go all the way to the end. Then come in 1/3 of the way and go the other direction to the end.
God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.
I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.
