Interesting... 

Thank you. I learned something about scrapers that I did not know before!

Actually Len, I heard it is supposed to be 'more than one way to skin a cat fish', but yea, lots of ways to do a finish cut.

In volume 3 of the Foxfire series, in the chapter on building banjos, housecat hide was the preferred material by some makers, so I'm sure there have been many cats skinned for that purpose.

They gave instructions for making the banjo, but didn't elaborate on which method they preferred for skinning a cat.

Probably just as well......

SRG on a bowl? Why do people say to never do that?

Because if you are not experienced AND careful there is a high potential for injury and/or damage. Just because you Can, doesn't mean you should.

There are right and wrong ways to use any tool. A SRG makes a good  finish tool on the outside of a bowl, and I guess could be used on the inside as well, but other tools work better.

+1 what Ed says.
I seen what can happen when a SRG was presented to a bowl blank. No one got hurt but the bang and crash got everyones attention. The individual was new to wood turning and missed the instruction to NOT use the SRG on the bowls.
In any case the SRG snapped over at the ferrul and shattered the handle. The handle tang of an SRG is not designed like a bowl gouge. It is safe to use a Bowl Gouge for Spindle roughing but not safe to use an SRG for Bowl turning. IMNSHO.  my 0.02 worth.

The tang on MOST SRG's is a narrow flat piece of metal that is not designed to take the stress that is normally inflicted when bowl turning.

Reed- Nice video and somehow as usual great timing! I'm just starting re-turning a pile of dry once turned bowls... I appreciate seeing all the ways you use your tools!
