    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

    game changer.

    I went from making thick, wavy, bowl bottoms to making thin, profiled, smooth, bottoms. Game changer. " Thick bottom bowls..." I just named your next business.

    From a Woman's Perspective....

    This is a must-read for the women out there who want to do something nice for their woodturning partners. I'd like to share a remarkable experience I had with this company...

    My husband (Russ) and I retired two years ago. Russ has always loved woodworking and when he retired he immediately bought his dream lathe and set about learning how to turn bowls, etc. It meant absolutely nothing to me as I had my own side business that kept me busy. Over the last year or so, I would watch him glued to YouTube learning how to do certain things. Fast forward to Christmas 2023...

    He wanted to show me a bowl that a YouTuber had done and so I sat down to watch it. First time I'd ever really paid attention to it. Russ mentioned the YouTuber was using a "negative rake scraper" (like I knew what THAT was) and he was frustrated because he couldn't find one. He wanted the bevel to be off-set from the center and wanted 40 degrees on each side. He said he'd looked everywhere and didn't feel comfortable grinding it himself. We live in Salt Lake and he'd called around and had no luck. I made a mental note of all the things he had talked about and set out to see if I could surprise him with one. I found several places online and reached out to many of them but never heard back.

    By then, I was about to give up when I saw Carter and Son on Google. I decided to try one last time. I remember sending the email on Christmas Eve. I explained what I was looking for and asked for forgiveness because I was sure I wasn't using the proper lingo. I shared the YouTuber Russ follows and explained the video I saw about the angles he uses on his negative rake scraper.

    The day after Christmas I get a personal phone call from Paul Carter. I was flabbergasted he took the time to call me and not just brush me off like every other company I reached out to. He said he thought it was cool that I was trying to surprise my husband and he wanted to help. Here's the best part....he had gone onto YouTube and looked up this guy and found the video I was referring to! I mean, seriously people, who does that?! He told me he could absolutely do that for me and he even wrote up an order for me and a week later we had it in the mail!

    I've never seen Russ so blown away by a surprise gift like this. It actually took him a minute to figure out what he was looking at because compared to his piddly tools he had bought with his lathe THIS wasn't even in the ballpark!

    I've never had so much fun shopping in my life. I told Paul that I was going to replace every tool Russ had and would be buying one a month. Here's the funny part....when it came down to ordering January's tool (1/2" bowl gouge) Russ said that since I'd found the perfect company, he'd "just do it". I said, "No can do, mister, because I have a friend in the industry now who helps me personally and we're going to have a long history together!" HA!

    I just ordered January's tool and Russ has been pouring over the catalog to see what he wants next.

    I share this story for any women out there who, if like me, have no freaking idea what tools are needed to turn bowls and have no one to help them. THIS IS THE COMPANY YOU HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR!

    Thank you Paul, for answering my email with a phone call and for giving me all the guidance you have given me. I've dealt with you now on two orders and consider you a friend. I will be back every month until Russ has the toolshop he's always dreamed of. You've made him and I both very happy!

    Best to you and yours!
