So lately I've been dealing with wobbly pieces. Even after they are rounded they still seem to wobble. Does anybody have any ideas on how to correct this. I've never had too much of an issue with it before until the last couple of days. I can't even explain it. Note I did hold the chisel one handed how ever I barely touching it up on the piece so it wouldn't catch onto the wood and cause injury, but I placed it just enough to show the horrible wobble not sure how to correct this issue. Video should give you a better idea of what I'm dealing with.
When I was turning all those lighthouse ornaments I was using pieces of dowel rods. When I chucked them up sometimes they didn't run true. I remembered a trick and used it to get the blank the straightest and therefore using less material. Here is a clip from a video I ran across that shows how it is done.
