Spindle gouge on bowls? *PIC*

Doug Thompson near Cleveland
>I've been playing around with this for a short while using a spindle gouge ground to 60 degrees like a bowl gouge with a secondary bevel to reduce the length of the orginal bevel.

My first impression is as a finishing tool it's easy to control inside and outside a bowl. The flute shape shears the wood like a U shape bowl gouge rolled on it's side.

Who else has tried this before and what did you discover?

Allen Neighbors, your other post made me think all work and no play is not heathly... made shavings all night.
