    Guidelines on Form

    Saw this article today by Mike Roper and figured I'd share it here. It's a good explanation of why and how good form appeals to most people, and why bad form can seem "off". If this helps even one beginner get away from turning straight-sided "dog dish" bowls, then my goal has been reached.

    Thanks Vaughn!

    I might add that the advice applies equally as well to spoon carving and similar pursuits. Took a while to figure out that shallower curves are both easier to do and often look better there ("learn" as in don't do it as often but the temptation is still there - "this would look better if I went deeper.. right?" wrong! well usually wrong anyway )
