Bob does a great job addressing this issue which will help you to understand it not only for this project for future ones too!

This project is a real turning adventure as part way though the exercise, Bob's tenon breaks on his bowl as does happen and Bob shows how he recovers! We like real life projects and the learning that can be gained from them. This is one that fits that bill!!!
