Reed, thanks for posting this video. The last minute with the feather board was eye opening. Now, I just have to keep that in mind as I turn.... Thanks again. .......... Jerry (in Tucson)

Reed...

Do you have a preference for which tool you use to clean-up the bottom of bowls with?  I've seen you use the fluteless gouge, the scraper, as well as reference the 'bottom feeder' bowl gouge.  I'm guessing it may be the fluteless gouge with the radius bottom allowing to more readily execute the high angle shear scrape.

BTW...I like my Robo Rest and I think I'm starting to obtain the proper 'feel' for the grind.

Thanks for the vid.  It cleared up some questions I had on using gouges.

I will admit I tend to use scrapers more for the inside of a bowl than gouges.

John,
The proper tool for bottoms depends on the piece of wood, and for some reason that seems to change from piece to piece, even of the same species. The only reason I can think of is 'because'. If I am taking off a shaving of 1/8 inch or so, then I like the blunted spindle/detain gouge. If I am only taking off a hair, then I like the fluteless gouges. Some times neither of those will work, so I will use a round flute gouge. I roll them all over on the side, and that gives a higher shear angle.
