Hi all, from a Woodcut Tools perspective we recommend at least a 4" spigot/ tenon is made to establish a nice wide grip held by a large dove tail chuck. Our friend Phil Irons recently produced a video demonstrating the process to create a Dovetail Spigot or Tenon for bowl coringI use the 2 blade Woodcut system, and have cored several 14”-15” bowls. I have used Stronghold #3 and #5 jaws. The #3 had plenty of grip for coring. I like the larger jaws to provide more wall support when finish turning the bowl. I use a tenon, and finish cut the foot after hollowing the ID, removing the large tenon. I core from smallest to largest bowl, one after the other, then mount with a jam chuck between centers to cut a tenon, then finish turn.
