This is my first attempt at a bowl. It is a small bowl. I don’t have a bowl gouge, so I used a spindle gouge, skew and round nose scraper.

I would like to turn more in the future. I just don’t have the right tools right now. I just did this one to see if I could and it was very difficult without the proper tools and experience.

you can make your spindle gouge work much like a bowl gouge by sharpening it differently. by snubbing the point up, and shortening the bevel. it works pretty well on smaller pieces like this. probably not for a 12” huge bowl. I have only used spindle gouges and can get by, but like you said, more tools are on the wish list.

Well Murch, I guess I am hooked. I have made 6 more bowls since this one. I will post them soon, so you can check them out.

Have your say...
