I’m going to be attempting my first rifle stock. I found a series of AWESOME videos on youtube (I hope he completes the series). Anyways, the gentleman in the video is discussing “gouges” and how he likes them because they keep chips from wandering off (I think he’s talking about splitting off the side like what often happens with a flat chisel). See the video starting at 13:30
So, I have no experience with gouges and really don’t even know what they are. Are they just curved chisels? Are “turning gouges” the same as what he shows in the video, only using it like a chisel? Any good sources for a inexpensive beginning set?
Thanks a million.
