Some likely raw materials and the requisite tools. One of the crabapple side-grind bowl gouge, turn from the bottom toward the rim with the flute
pieces in front became the bowl I turned for this article. (groove) pointing in the direction you are turning, and cut with the edge just
to the left of the center of the tool (the lowest part of the edge).
Flatten the bottom using the bowl gouge to cut toward center. Use the low side of the gouge. Leave a crisp bump in the middle for later use in centering the workpiece on the waste block.

Continue shaping the outside of the bowl. Here you can see exactly how the * j gouge is cutting. Keep the bevel riding on the wood behind the cut. That's how you keep control of the tool and the cut.
If the rim is turned downward, as m ine is here, you will need to reverse the direction of the tool motion on that part. Push the tool into the cut, not toward the workpiece itself, and blend into cut you made from the side. (Also, see "A Familiar Tool" on page 93.)
You should check occasionally to be sure the workpiece hasn't loosened on the mount. Screws can pull loose if they are in a softer spot in the wood. Stop the lathe, touch both the faceplate and the workpiece with a finger of your left hand, and give the piece a sharp tap with the heel of your right hand. If the piece has loosened, you will be able to feel it with your left hand.
