What did I do wrong?

Carole in VA
>After watching Bill's video about 4 times, I finally got up the nerve to try a bowl out of a chunk of paulownia. Turned the outside and turned a tenon to fit my Nova Midi and chucked the bowl and started on the inside. I got a very small catch and the tenon separated from the bowl at the shoulder. What did I do wrong? Does this happen often? The paulownia is very soft and "pithy"...tools that cut other woods smooth as silk still leave this stuff fuzzy as heck.
