The tools / Gouges


Gouges are hollow bladed chisels. They are used for hollowing cups, troughs and bowls but also for wood carvings and moldings. Cutting with gouges can be done by hand or with a mallet.

Straight gouge

Straight gouges are best suited for carvings and for shallow bowls or plates.

Bent gouge

Bent gouges make it easier to work deep bowls.

Dog leg gouge

Dog leg gouges are used for cutting hard to reach areas were other gouges do not work.
