Tom's Tools for Wood Turning Instructors

What a great teaching aid for teachers and demonstrators!

Larger-than-life wood woodturning tools for teachers and demonstrators
There are a lot of woodturners who stand in front of woodturning clubs and classes to share the joy of the craft. We all want the audience to understand what we are doing and how we are doing it when we make the chips fly. Having larger-than-life woodturning tools helps that process as even those in the back row can see the parts of the tool and how to hold it when it is several times larger than an actual high speed steel tool. I make those large tools for demonstrators and they can be seen at TomsTools.com. The tool set includes a 24" long handle which fits all the tools, a bowl gouge, spindle gouge, spindle roughing gouge, skew, parting tool, and two round-nose scrapers. The full set also includes a stand for the tools. Each of these may be ordered separately but there is a discount when ordering a full set.
