Thanks to watching some videos from John Lucas I have been using my bowl gouge. I sharpened it then changed the grind to something I liked and gave it another try. Still faster at some things using my carbides but at least it isn't going to waste just sitting in the rack.

Dang, I was hoping to see a cheap bowl gouge in the classifieds one of these days :laughing:

Uh, sorry, I meant to type good for you :thumbsup:

I was taught to use a bowl gouge before I got any carbide tools, I find each has its time and place.

Have one carbide tool (a rusdemka...whatever happened to him btw?) that I still haven't made a handle for. Learned on traditional tools and haven't wanted to cross over to the dark side ;-)

I love carbide tools for some things, like roughing a shape or hollowing; but you cannot beat the finish or control you get from a nice sharp bowl gouge, shear scraper, bedan, or skew chisel.

Dema hasn't had as much time to go online lately, been busy on some home projects that became more urgent. I'm sure that he'll be back!

I bought some carbide before I learned to sharpened properly. I very seldom use the carbide any more.

I haven't actually done a real bowl gouge video yet. I do show it in some of the others. I plan on doing one possibly in July after I get back from the AAW symposium. Also planning one on Keith Thompkins V skew. I'm behind on doing both of those but home repairs, car repairs, and family things got in the way.
