Great looking bowl Les. I also like a smaller foot on my bowls. 1/3 of the total diameter. I also agree with the spindle gouge not being used on a bowl. A bowl gouge would be a better choice. My neighbor used a spindle gouge on a bowl and when it snapped on a catch had to make a trip to the emergency room for 13 stitches. Ripped his hand open pretty good. Not trying to scare anyone just telling you what can happen with a catch and the wrong tool.
