First, let me 2nd Rich Greer’s recommendation of the Easy wood tools.

I also have this set from Penn State Industries that was recommended to me when I was starting out. Nothing fancy, but they get the job done and hold an edge pretty well. I have no co,plaints whatsoever with them.

I ve been told by experienced turners that the main difference between good tool and cheap ones is how well they will stay sharp. Even cheap tools should cut well when first sharpened.
