We've got it mounted and we need to put our tool rest in there. Readjust our banjo. Now with the bowl gouge, where we use it in that down position, the tool rest is actually, probably a good 1/4 of an inch below the center. Make sure everything is all right. Always spin it and we are going to use our bowl gouge to scoop out the middle. I don't want to start right in here because I'm going to have to go right in to all this hard wood. I'm going to start right in here and make a series of cuts, just scooping it out a little more each time as I come through. Every thing's clear and anchored. It's really easy to make a really aggressive cut in here. You have got to remember that in the middle, this is turning very slow while out here it's turning quite fast. So I can't push to hard right in this area. Be patient. Got a little bit of a catch. What happened there is, I anchored but I didn't have my bevel set and it caught on me. So I'm going to come in and anchor it again. I'm going to get a little stronger anchor, come in, now I've got that bevel and I can keep going.
