recess vs tenon ()

George Balock
I like a tenon over a recess for all of my bowls (I never single turn a bowl) for two reasons. One, it is much easier for me to true up a tenon versus a recess for the second turning. Two, I think it has less impact on determining the size of the foot than a recess does. And finally, I think it’s stronger.
