$160 - Bowl Gouge with handle

11" long, 2 3/8" wide sweep


This gouge was designed when I was struggling to figure out adz design. This is a much simpler tool. With a heavy mallet, it works almost as fast as an adze but with more control. Also, because of the flattened bottom, you can finish the bowl with a smooth finish. The disadvantage to using a gouge is that you need to have some way to hold the bowl while you work.


The bowl in the images was carved completely with this gouge inside and outside, except the chip carving on the rim.
