  1. Howdy! I love this technique. I use it all the time for flat pieces, but am having trouble using it in a tube. I watched the join tutorial, but I think my problem is with the fdc and not the join. My pieces always curve slightly toward the bottom. No problem with a flat piece as the next row pulls it square, but when I attempt to join, I get a circle that lies flat instead of a tube. No matter how many more rows I do, it wants to maintain that smaller bottom. Any ideas?
