Typically, vacuum chucking is used to reverse mount a bowl or platter to provide total access to the bottom of the item. There are several advantages to this system.

Oneway Mastercut 5/8" Double-Ended Bowl Gouge

Oneway Mastercut Double-Ended Bowl Gouges for wood turning are distinguished both by the quality of their materials and by the thoughtfulness of their design. They're made of CPM M4 high speed steel, which stays sharp up to 3 times longer than conventional HSS. The 1/2" spindle gouge's shallow flute is ground well above the center of the tool, leaving much more mass and stiffness than usual in the shank, making it especially well suited for reaching well past the tool rest (10" total length).
