Sharpening

When I'm sharpening a turning gouge or skew should the bevel be flat or concave? Does it matter?

tim_0106,

Hopefully, an expert will chime in and enlighten us on this one. Until then, I would think that flat is what we are trying to achieve. Of course, if you use a grinding wheel, the result will be slightly concave due to the radius of the wheel.

The bevel should be flat. Concavity would weaken the blade.
