Been trying to learn the skew. Seems like I am getting the hang of it then I get catch after catch because I can't see why I am getting them. Trying to clean up an end face or narrow V gets me in trouble.
Anyway, hadn't did any faceplate turning for awhile and I was in the mood. This is seven inches tall, five in diameter, and an eighth thick. Buffed lacquer for a finish. The finish needed a couple more coats or so I had planned. It had a nice shine so I buffed the outside. Couldn't get inside, got to buy some balls to go with my wheels. Trying to reach inside seemed to beat up my rim and left a color difference where the wheels didn't reach. Knew I couldn't buff and the inside is a couple coats lighter on finish anyway.
I put it on a chinese tallow bowl so I could get the gray background behind it, a back cushion. Makes it hard to tell the little bead showing on bottom is the foot of the vase. Did make a little bead that proved an aggravation to keep getting the finish out of. The sides do curve slightly out, something else not plain in the picture. Got to put more curve on my dog food bowls for pointy nosed bird dogs.
