4. Randing Base
Randing was, for many years, my go-to method for round and oval bases, mostly because it's very fine looking, but also because it's quicker and easier in comparison to pairing (at least for me). I like to use short leftover rods for this, of more-or-less equal thickness from tip to butt. Aside from the randing itself, we'll also learn how to "lock" it at the end with a single round of pairing.
