Stop end-grain bowl blow-out

Your three-point Lidded Bowl (Issue 197, May 2010) intrigued me enough to try turning again. Unfortunately, I ran into the same problem I had in the past: When shaping the bowl’s exterior, the gouges catch and blow out the wood where they encounter end grain. My tools are sharp enough to shave with. What am I doing wrong?
