    Good article on bowl gouge grinds and history

    Glenn Lucas posted a link to this on his Facebook feed the other day. It's a really interesting history of how we ended up with the modern bowl gouge.

    Thanks for this, Ryan! I am gonna sit down and read it after while. Looks quite interesting.

    Interesting. Some things to try when the snow melts off my shop floor.

    Thanks Ryan just what the doctor ordered for me.
    I have the one way grinding setup and dumbass I am when turning in December forgot to use it. Duh.
    So I ground a few gouges without it and only later kicked my own butt.
    Now that I have my lathe all setup on its new bench I will be making sure I have a setup handy for dealing with my lathe chisel grinding. Want it to be a handy and dedicated sharpening station. No use when tools are away in cupboards or draws.
