Re: OK I finally decided to watch some HP vids
Well, being as I made one of the videos in question, I figured I better put my 2 cents in. I would like to point out that I was inspired to try the over pack method I demonstate in the video based on photos that twoapplesplease posted.
The method has worked well for me and I would encourage everyone to give it a try. I would NOT go so far as to say it is the "correct" method of bowl packing. I still use a "standard" packing technique most of the time and I get great results.
As was stated by others, we all do things a bit differently. What works for me may not work for you. I am generally willing to try what works for you and come to my own conclusions. Bottom line is a person has to find out what works for them through experimenting with what is known to work for others. (say that 10 times fast!)
If you do watch my video, be aware that recently I have tried this method with a slightly larger in diameter bowl and gotten better results.
