Spot on Derek i think its a tool you cant get complacent with, I've just bought a new 1'' skew from sorby I aint used it yet will practice on some scrap wood first, as Bill say's put it to good work and sods law.

Hi Bill, thanks for the reply and comments I didnt use any devices or multiple centres.
As you say about working by touch and a very slow job for me it was anyway.

Thank you all, Fatboy i think it will be ok free standing the table i recycled is pine not the best to turn, and the finish i put on was 2 coats of sanding sealer sanded between coats and then 3 coats of clear wax sorry it went before i could take a photo of the finished look.

Thanks for the reply Ron, it took me a minute to think what you was saying but that is a valid point it is a bit top heavy but it would of been to much work to reduce the thickness.
