I normally don’t waste my time responding to comments on my videos. People have their own views and that’s that. However l think l need to clear a couple of things up.
First of all, the end result was a perfect internal corner. There wasn’t a gap visible. I can’t see a problem with that.
Secondly l am aware that a continuous cope is by far better than a segmented one which is what l did in the video. I refer to that in the video. A continuous cope is a much harder skill for the learner to deal with. That is who the video is directed at. In the video l did the segmented cope to show that you don’t have be a master of the craft and that anyone can tackle the task. I doubt any of you “experts” could have completed a perfect continuous cope around an ornate object when you first started out.
The main part of a cope that needs to be spot on is the leading edge of the shape. As long as you 'back cut' the cope (which l mentioned in the video) it doesn’t necessarily matter how messy the back of the cut is.
Thirdly, l’m not sure how many of you “experts” have tried to video tape yourself doing a skill while trying to not get in the way of the shot. It is quite difficult and as a consequence you can’t get in the position you normally would to execute the task.
And fourthly, aahhh Bud Cline, it was only a matter of time before another of your inane (just in case you aren’t aware of the meaning of the word, it pertains to ‘having little sense or importance, empty or insubstantial) statements filtered through. Surely a little more constructed comment could have been posted. Any poorly educated fool could post what you did.
This would be interesting, how about a couple of you “experts” put your money where your mouths are and submit some videos of your own and let us pass some ‘judgement’ on you. Should be good for a laugh.
It’s amazing how brave you can be behind the anonymity of a keyboard.
