Overview

Mike’s aptly named “wood beater” is designed to efficiently turn large pieces.

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) 
  • Polished flute for a razor edge and efficient chip flow
  • Double bevel reduces catches and unwanted marks on the cutting surface
  • Superior M42 high speed steel for less grinding & cleaner cuts
  • Put comfort and control first with an aluminum handle
  • 100% American manufacturing backed by a lifetime guarantee & 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 started with a sharper edge, but we didn'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 decades, and it’s uniquely suited for woodturning. You’ll grind less - a cobalt additive bumps M42’s red hardness off the charts for impressive wear resistance. And the steel produces a finer, sharper edge for clean cuts. M42 is a win-win: less grinding and smoother cuts. 

    Our M42 starts as solid stock and is precision machined (not formed) with a unique round tang and unmatched strength. 

    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. Gouge flutes are meticulously polished for the sharpest edge. 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 and the tools right here

    Fantastic Tool Steel

    I purchased the wood beater several months ago and have absolutely loved it. Their M42 steel is second to none, holds and edge exceptionally well and the polished steel (especially the flute) ejects chips better than any other that I've used. I was a little skeptical of how often I would use a 3/4" gouge, but it adds great rigidity for reaching over the tool rest and can take aggressive cuts (using the 40/40 grind) to quickly remove lots of waste. I have since reground the steel as a bottom bowl gouge and it works wonders.
