dj, here are some pics of different grind/angles. If you click on the titles the pics will open. 45 degree shows a regular grind on top, fingernail on bottom, both 45 degrees. Top is 3/8 bottom is 1/2 inch. 2nd pic is both 3/8. 3rd pic is spindle gouges, all fingernail, top 45 degrees, middle 40 degrees and bottom 35 degrees. The last pic is my sharpening setup with all my turning tools (I'm a tool whore, what can I say). I use Coban to wrap my handles and color code them for easier identification.
That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...
