"Side-Ground Bowl Gouge: A Tutorial"
Don Geiger

Frequent use of a tool makes it second nature; using it optimally improves your work and opens possibilities in your projects. This demo will show you numerous uses for a side-ground bowl gouge on face-grain blanks.

Deep-fluted bowl gouges with the following grinds will be demonstrated:
 60° single-bevel Irish/Ellsworth style side-ground gouge
 70° micro-bevel side-ground gouge with single or double relief grinds

The varieties of cuts that will be demonstrated are:
 Outside: roughing, shaping and finishing cuts
 Inside: roughing and the illusive and the often feared inside finishing cut The proper sharpening of these tools will be demonstrated and a natural edged bowl will be turned.
