On the inside face I removed quite a lot with this size gouge does leave a lot of ridges to clean up. For that I switched to the thumb planes. Will use a scraper and sandpaper to go any further I think. For the outside face I used the gouge to knock down the castles but then switched to the planes. Flat plane for the convex curves and double round for the waist. Another hazard with small planes - they can be eaten by the shop vac. Next steps: Need to build one of those ginormous caliper thingamabobs. Then scrape scrape scrape and sand sand sand. But first sleep sleep sleep.
