I have a set of Easy wood carbide turning tools but find them a little short, so after seeing what Jerry made I thought maybe make my own? Made with some scrap Oak that was in the shop.

Not real purity and need to do some work on the insert seat, found some 3/8” SS square stock for a good price!

Have done about 6 little bowls, platter/plates couple in teak for Ma! Ran out of dry blanks and some of my green ones checked real bad when the temp dropped! Looks like shovelling snow for today?
