 Product Description

All 1/2" Bowl Gouge - Bottom Feeder flutes are individually inspected and hand polished to remove all machine marks. This extra step assures the sharpest cutting edge possible. They are shipped sharp.

The Bottom Feeder grind is used on the inside of bowls especialy for finish cuts, I also use it on the outside of bowls from the foot to the top for all of my finishing cuts, if you learn to use this grind for finish cuts your sanding will be greatly reduced. You can always sand a piece into submission, but it is not much fun.

  1. Dave Schweitzer produced an excellent product.

    Posted by Ronald Sack on Jul 23rd 2018

    Beautifully made gouge with high quality steel, great workmanship and nicely shaped gouge. It is really sharp; now if I can just replicate that shape and edge after some use.


  2. BEST FINISHING GOUGE EVER

    Posted by DAVID APPLEGET on Jul 11th 2018

    DAVE ,THANKS FOR A GREAT FINISHING GOUGE,THE BOTTOM FEEDER IS PERFECT


  3. 1st Class Bowl Gouge

    Posted by El Halley on Jun 30th 2018

    I have several bowl gouges and this is my go to one for pleasurable turning and difficult grain. I researched other top brand and queried my WT expert friends and decided on this gouge


  4. 1/2"" bottom feeder is an excellent tool.

    Posted by John from NH on Apr 27th 2018

    The bottom feeder arrived with a pre ground 50 degree bevel which was reground to about 70 degrees to reach deep into he calabash bowls I frequently make. Also replaced my general use 1/2" and 5/8" bowl gouges with DWays because they are superior to the English industry standard M2 tools I have been using for about 30 years. Like the 6" flute length and shape, and they take and hold a very fine edge when ground on Dave's CBN wheels. Will only buy DWay turning tools in the future.


  5. Finally able to complete a deep bowl

    Posted by Unknown on Apr 11th 2018

    I was finally able to get around the bottom of a bowl without having to change over to a scraper until I was ready to do the final clean up. Using this tool speed up the process from start to finish and made for a much better turning experience. I was also surprised at how sharp the tool was when I unwrapped it and that I was able to start turning immediately.


  6. Great tool for smoothing bowl bottoms

    Posted by wudstock on Sep 10th 2017

    This is my second purchase as I either mis-placed the first one or re-shaped the it. It does an excellent job of cleaning up the bottom and helps minimize sanding , thus saves time too.


  7. Awesome Tools

    Posted by Mike Turner on Aug 21st 2017

    D-Way tools are my go to tools.I have several and thoroughly enjoy to use them.I highly recommend them to anyone wanting a high quality tool!


  8. My first D-Way tool but not my last

    Posted by Mark Infanti on Aug 3rd 2017

    I have been turning for about 3 years. I have made and bought a variety of tools.I like the idea of the M-42 steel tools. I have been interested in the D-way tools for a while. So when I decided that I need a new bowl gouge I came to D-Way.

    This "bottom feeder" does exactly what the name implies. It is great at cleanly cutting the bottom of my bowls, even in end grain.

    It came sharp, which I really appreciate. I have used it on 3 turnings so far and have not seen the need to sharpen it yet so I cannot say what it is like to sharpen but I expect no surprises.

    Great tool and I will try a couple more tools shorlty.


  9. arrives sharp,stays sharp

    Posted by steve dyer on Jun 2nd 2017

    I TURN BOWLS ON MY JET 1642 LATHE. THE 1/2 GOUGE I GOT FROM D-WAY TOOLS IS EASY TO SHARPEN AND CLEANS UP THE BOTTOM OF BOTH GREEN AND DRY BOWLS EXTREMELY WELL.

    THANKS DAVE


  10. Great tool right out of the box

    Posted by Unknown on Apr 24th 2017

    This bottom feeder tool was used to level the bottom of a Black Walnut bowl and performed exceptionally well. Extremely pleased with the performance and will recommend it to fellow wood turners.
