You have to look at the wood he was using, and you should rough out your blanks on a bandsaw to get them round. Safety first.

Harrison, at your service!

That's what i was wondering, if you're not turning a square platter, why do that. Even if you do want to do a square, glue paper to the edges and add more wood and cut it round. Then when you have the shape you want, knock off the blocks you added and you have a square platter turned safely.

The thing is not that it's not round it's that you shouldn't use a roughing gouge for that purpose. Use a bowl gouge for that purpose. As he very well showed in that video a roughing gouge can grab too easily even in experienced hands.
Glueing wood onto the square piece would help but using a roughing gouge on a side grain piece like that can still cause problems.
This video is why I did the video on Roughing gouge alternative. It's simply much safer to use a bowl gouge.

You really shouldn't use a roughing gouge, however, it's quite obvious from the video that he lost control because he had way too much overhang. He was in fact using the bevel as you wood with a bowl gouge. It's not right, but it's helpful to note exactly why it went wrong.

Thanks for posting this Robbie. I learned something. To be honest, I didn't know the difference between the two gouges. I've only turned a couple of bowls and most of what I've done on my lathe has been spindle work. Looks like I have been lucky thus far. Now I'll make sure I have the proper tool before I try another.

Thanks for posting this! I was here looking for info on turning my first bowl (have only done a few spindles and a peppermill), and this saved me from making multiple mistakes (probably saved my fingers too).
