I made a couple of wood turning tools. I used 1/2” C/R steel from the Orange store. Picked up the rest of the stuff from a local tool supplier.
I laminated 2 pcs of Cherry to make a 1 3/4” x 13” handle, turned on the lathe.
I drilled a 1/2” hole 2 1/2” deep and used 2 part appoxy to set the shaft.
3/16 HSS cutters cut to size and rounded over. I added a 45° bevel to the face. The texturing wheel is a replacement part for a grinder stone facing tool. I sharpened the points with a Dremel.
I added Half of a 3/4 copper coupling on the shank of the handle and finished with Teak oil and Varathane.
The cutters work quite well but I need a bit of practise with the texturing tool. :)
