William - It's great that you have kept at it, and worked out what's going on.
Now you know, you want to get lots of practice under your belt. You want that cutting of curves vested in your muscle memory so you never have to think about it any more - you just do it.

Chris. I have been discouraged by the challenge of carving the bowls of letters, even though I was aware of your method. I finally realized the key to my problem — one must keep pushing well down on the tool as you swing it on its intended arc. The rest is, as usual, a good cutting edge and an eye on the outside line described by the pattern. I can't thank you enough for showing this instruction.
