This is my third attempt at turning and most difficult by far. I went out and purchased three easy wood tools, the full sized rougher, finisher, and detailer but they did not work well for this piece. The hard sap lines and soft wood in between were very difficult to turn smoothly with the easy wood tools. I had to go back to my bowl gouge in order to get a decent cut. I do not intend to turn a lot of pine but I figured that I would share my findings for those of you who do turn pine.

Nice bowl. I see you have the EWT tools. They are essentially scrapers and you can get some cleaner cuts with a nice sharp bowl gouge. If you get a chance, look up the DVDs from Lyle Jamieson from Traverse City, Mi. They are very valuable information starting form how to select the blank from a log to getting best finish with the 4 gouge cuts .Good turning!!.................Jim

Actually, I am regretting the purchase a little bit, I like the rougher but not the other tools. Oh well. Thanks for the advice though.
