I agree with Jake. Turn from the center out. If your still getting tearout try using a tool that has a more acute edge. Bowl gouges typically aren't that sharp unless your using Stewart Batty's 40/40 grind. YOu could also try shear scraping but even then try to go downhill with the grain which would be from the center out if the boards are stacked.
