Ok let's see if I can describe this correctly---- #1 is it safe? #2 is it practical? Question: Can you round off the corners of a square (say 12x 12 x1") from the tailstock side? I know it can be done along the axis of the bed-- but perpendicular to the axis? I saw ONE video on youtube & he turned it round pretty quickly!! He was using a carbide cutter, not HSS. Just plunged it in and cut off the corners Project: I was planning on making serving "platters". Normally they are made from a 3" thick piece of wood with the center hollowed out by using a fostner bit. But that seems to me to be an extreme waste of wood. I was planning on making rings using a parting tool or something similar and then gluing them on a 1/2-3/4" thick base. That way I could use the inside of the ring to make smaller "bowls"/rings-- to make serving dishes. So ---- is it safe & is it practical? thks smitty
