Detailed Description

Bodger 1/2 inch Bowl Gouge

If you’re new to woodturning, our Bodger woodturning tools are a great entry level tool for woodturners starting out. They have full size hardwood handles, metal ferrules, are dimensioned to the North American standard and come with decent angle geometries on the ground edges (though you can always re-grind according to your preferences).

Bodger tools are made from 4341 HSS. While not as hard as other blends of HSS found in the turning tools we offer from Sheffield England or from north America, these tools are very economical and have proven to be ideal for use by our students in our turning classes. This economy also makes them a good choice for newbie turners figuring out how to sharpen their turning tools since abrading away tool steel at the grinder as you learn is best done NOT with an expensive premium brand of turning tool. Bodger tools can also can be a good affordable choice for experienced turners needing a single tool profile that may be used less frequently, though is still indispensable.
