Stand in front of the lathe and learn to copy

It is not that hard and you get a better finish of your normal tools.

All copiers are scrapers so you still need to use your tools to fix them up.

Tea lady made a set of 3 legs at the kiewa turn and they were near perfect.

I would go with this as its the best advice by far and its only slow and hard in the very beginning
