Step 5: Refinement

This step is why it's awesome to use Inventor.  After the 3D part is rendered, the sketches from which the revolutions were derived can still be altered.  Here I adjusted the splines and brought the ends of the two axis together on the top.  When turning, both axis will have the same center on one side.  The result is a slightly different shape with a nearly rotationally symmetrical head.  
This is a great tip for amateur turners. I am wondering, would it be better to title it "Asymmetrically Turned Wood Figure" ?
I sure wish there was a TechShop near me.
Really nice job. :) <br>
