Ed great 2nd bowl. Just keep turning them out. I was there one time just like you are. I wouldn't even post my 2nd bowl. Tear out is a hard thing to work with. Like Stu said I found you don't have to stand on the sandpaper to make it work. Light touches and let the paper to the work. I have found two things that work for me. First when I watched Mike Mahoney turn a bowl in his video "From The Tree To The Table" he turned a bowl with a gouge with a Ellsworth grind. When he had the bowl shaped where he wanted it he said he had tear out. He says to spritz it with water or use mineral oil or walnut oil. I use a little squirt bottle and give it a couple of squirts or rub some oil on the tearout spots. I then take a P & N bowl gouge I bought with a conventional grind on it. Make sure it is sharp and then take one or two final cuts. Most times that will take care of the problem. If not I will lightly spritz it again and then try power sanding. Hope this helps
