Chatter/vibration in bowl turning

Greg Wandless
>I have been having quite a frustrating time turning bowls. I get a bowl roughed out no problem. However, once it dries and go to finish turn it I have all kinds of trouble with vibration and chattering as I turn. I've tried taking lighter cuts, resharpening the tool, bracing the bowl with my fingers, etc with no significant improvement in chatter.
