Description

Our wood turning tools are only made for cutting, not scraping. They are designed according to old, Swedish wood turning tradition.

We make our Turning gouges in three different sizes:

  • Large Turning gouge 37 cm / 25 mm, with a rounded bevel shape. Works good for removing lot of material, both for spindle turning and face work.
  • Medium sized Turning gouge 31 cm / 20 mm and our small Turning gouge 28 cm / 14 mm has a pointed bevel shape. Both are good for turning coves and beads, along with bowl turning.

If you want to hone your turning gouges, you can use a polishing disc of wool along with some polishing wax, or a slipstone with 8000 grit. It is important to keep the bevel angle at between 25 and 27 degrees. And as always with sharpening and honing: practice makes perfect.
