George Vondriska teaches you how to complete a sheering cut with a bowl gauge in order to face off the rough end grain on a spindle. He demonstrates the proper technique, which involves making a small shoulder at the end of your spindle material and turning the gouge to start the sheer. You’ll end up with a smooth, sloping end to your spindle that will look great and won’t catch.
