To me it is like in the other software you fully create the model before working on the CAM part. But in vcarve the drawing and CAM are sort of done at the same time.

I usually arrange my toolpaths so that I leave sufficient material for a last pass carve with the High Core Box Bit

That is what I am trying to do , like the bottom of a candy dish. I have one of those bits kicking around somewhere. I suppose it is all to to with the getting the offset of the tool from the path selected correct ?
But also thinking of some other things I want to do in future I would like more shallow bowl cuts larger in diameter than any sensible router bit. So how do I do that?
