Green Woodworking using hand tools and freshly felled timber.
The gouge idea is fine as long as no one tries using a hammer. That idea about making your bowl vise longer may be a good one.
Nothing wrong at all, I hope to get a nice curved adze when I save up some pennies.Nice work Brian
No I think there's no prob using the adze as a gouge, I'd not considered using a maul though - good idea! On the other hand I like using the adze as an adze to get as fine a finish as poss before using spoke shave/knife and I think it's good practice for hand eye co-ordination to take out those smoothing chips with tiny chops following on each other - just my point of view on it - so long as you can produce good bowls safely who cares?
I have seen several videos where Northwestern coastal Native sculptors use their elbow adzes with an additional mallet blow, and also using it more like a hand plane as in the pics here.
