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.
