The gestures to acquire
The first gesture that the wood turner must acquire is the ‘outlining’ which allows the roughing of the workpiece. It requires a long practice to successfully press the bevel of the chisel or gouge, flatly, on the surface to be worked and to control the applicable pressure. It is then by giving the handle of his cutting tool a slight movement of rotation of the wrist to the right associated with a small movement of the elbow upwards, that the turner manages to naturally attack the wood with the cutting edge of the gouge or chisel blade and unroll a more or less thick chip depending on the angle.
