Ok, before I start this thread, let me just say that I acknowledge my own ignorance, so please no lectures about joining a club or doing research. I plan to do the research before I get started, and I don't even have a chuck yet...planning to purchase this summer. Anyway, I've done a handful of pens (including my most recent with deer antler--a bit trickier, but very cool and came out nice), a t-ball/little league bat, and a few tool handles. I've been getting into turning over the last year, and as everyone says, it is soooo addictive. The next step is working with a chuck on some bowls and other things, but I can't seem to find a good explanation about the difference in a bowl gouge. I've got a wide assortment of roughing and spindle gouges, and I have no problem paying for a nice bowl gouge, but what is the difference?
