What kind of carbide gouge? I've never seen a bowl gouge made from carbide. Are you referring to the Hunter carbide tools?

If you are using a tool with a carbide insert as a scraper it may be a matter of presenting it at the proper angle and at the right place on the inside wall. I prefer to use a bowl gouge sharpened with the wings swept back some.

Do you have problems while removing excess wood to hollow the bowl or when down the rim to the bottom, cutting across the bottom, what?
