removing nubbin at bowl center

>My wife is turning small hand bells for Christmas tree ornaments. They are about 1.5 inches in diameter, of various hardwoods. She is having problems removing the little nubbin at the center of the bowl. She has used her gouge and small scrapers. I suggested pre drilling a center hole and then not hollowing any deeper. She doesn't like my answer. Please let us know your favorite method of solving this problem. Thanks
