It's great watching an old time craftsman like that, but I admit I winced when he was sanding with his hand between the bowl and the tool rest. I counted his fingers and they were all there although it looks like he whacked or pinched his right middle finger on something. Neat video. Thanks for sharing.

I haven't seen that vid on youtube.. Did you notice the fact that he sharpened his tools... he didn't need an attachment to help him grind right... and what was that third tool he sharpened.

I would like his grinder, are you talking about the hook tool?

Makes me want to go find a hunk of wood and turn a bowl! Welcome to the forum NY!

Awesome video. It looks like the hooked tool was a bowl scraper. I wonder how the hook helped in that capacity. He had a small catch with it, though. :P

His sharpening brings up a question: his stone was turning away from him. My bench grinder that I've been using to sharpen turns down toward me. Which one is better for sharpening?

The problem with most grinder/sharpening systems is that the wheel is rotating too fast. A wheel can only remove so much meat per revolution.

This video proves that hand grinding is the best. The machines do hold a more accurate angle, but you only cut with the first few thousandths.

So, in a way, the expensive machines grind away too much metal, more than necessary for a good edge.

Harrison, at your service!

I don't know the correct english term for it but it is a turning hook. As you can see he is using the old turning technique. Look at the long, curly shavings he gets. It's like the use of skew chisels but he uses the gouges the same way and were he can't reach any deeper with the gauge he use the hook. This technique was used when lathes were slowrunning and hand- or footoperated. The technique is hard to learn but when you master it very awarding. You can cut very sharp profiles and you get a very smooth result wich need very little sanding.
