Overview

Mike’s aptly named “wood beater” is built for efficient material removal and shaping. 

The hefty 3/4" diameter and slightly shorter flute provide vibration dampening. A sharp arc on the nose ensures a smaller cutting surface, making the tool easier to control. 

What makes a 5-star wood beater?

  • 3/4” parabolic bowl gouge 
  • Shipped sharp with the grind found at Mahoney’s lathe (easily duplicated using a Wolverine jig) 
  • Double bevel reduces catches and unwanted marks on the cutting surface
  • Superior M42 high speed steel with a 10% cobalt content, for unparalleled edge holding 
  • M42 HSS' unique durability and razor edge mean less grinding and cleaner cuts
  • Unmatched flute polish boosts the razor edge and provides efficient chip flow
  • Put comfort and control first with an interchangeable aluminum handle
  • Handcrafted in the USA, and backed by a lifetime guarantee and hassle-free returns

The Specs

  • Parabolic flute, and swept back grind at 40º
  • Blade measures 3/4” outside diameter x 13” overall
  • 3/4” tang diameter
  • 16” x 3/4” handle (no adapter) 

 

    How This Tool Is Built

    We start with the sharpest edge, and we don't stop there. Vanquish vibration, say adios to constant resharpening, and let wispy shavings fly. Delivering superior performance at your lathe drives our manufacturing. 

    We’ve worked with M42 high speed steel for 4 decades, and it’s uniquely suited to woodturning. You’ll grind less - a cobalt additive provides unparalleled edge holding. And the steel produces a finer, sharper edge for clean cuts. M42 is a win-win: less grinding and smoother cuts. 

    Our carefully sourced M42 starts as solid stock and is precision machined (not formed) with a unique round tang for unmatched strength. Every gouge sports a distinctive flute polish. This boosts the razor edge and provides efficient chip flow. Learn more about M42 HSS here.

    Rigorous and detailed sums up our manufacturing. Each tool’s vibration-demolishing round tang has a diameter so precise you’ll hear a ‘pop’ when you pull it out of the handle. And every tool leaves our factory razor sharp and backed by a 100% lifetime guarantee. Built to last!

    Rest assured our aluminum handles feel as great as they look. Perfectly weighted for balance and maneuverability, and designed to fit your hand. You’ll forget the handle is even there, in the best way possible. Two set screws secure your tool into the handle and allow removal for sharpening.

    From flute polish to handle knurling, we’re not cutting corners. Whether you’re just starting out, or have been turning for decades, it’s an honor to serve you with quality tools. Learn more about our story here

    Mahoney Wood Beater

    Another winner from Carter and Son and Mike Mahoney. I was finally able to use the wood beater today on a large bowl and it cut beautifully out of the box and the large tool really cut down on the vibration when rounding out the bowl. It’s always a joy using Carter and Son tools and the service is first class.
