While I think sharpening your tools may be the solution, how the tool is used (presented to the wood) may also be the cause. What type of tools are you using? How far from the tool rest to the blank? Was the blank round to start with? Bowl size (diameter and depth)? What is your turning speed? How is the wood grain oriented to the axis of rotation?How do you know wood is not dry? Was the tear out inside or outside the bowl? Sorry to ask so many questions but the answers to them may let us help you further and better.
