    What are the best gouges to cut out the inside of the bowl. I am a new wood worker and my projects come out very nice, but it takes me 4 times as long as I ve seen it done on video or you tube. Also no matter how careful I am my tools never glide smoothly like the ones I ve seen on you tube. Any suggestions?

    To use a big enough chuck to fit in the inside of the bowl your turning, so do they make chuck that expand to say 6”?

    Late getting in but watching from Emily, MN. Always enjoy watching and learning more ways to work with my lathe and saws and other tools. Thank you.

    On your Green turnings, are you leaving them thicker to dry and prevent warping? and how long are you leaving them to dry?

    Hello, woodshop teacher in Okinawa Japan here, thank you for this class! I am wondering why George prefers to turn green wood over kiln dryed?

    Why bother with the bottom recess when you have the bowl edge chuck and could have put the flat bottom against it?
