There are 11 basic woodturning tools used in wood working: roughing gouge, spindle gouge, bowl gouge, skew chisel, parting tool, hallowing tool, scraper, bowl saver, auger, chatter tool, and wire.

 

Creating a wood project requires certain tools to perfectly cut, drill, carve, or shape the wood. So that you can efficiently produce a well-made wood product, your tools must be sharped and maintained at all times. Below are the different types of woodturning tools to use in making a wood project:

 

Roughing gouge

 

This is a flat cutting tool that produces a large cut. It will roughly shape a wooden spindle and is ideal for the initial cutting of wood pieces. It is not advisable to use a roughing gouge when making a bowl shaped item.
