Let me be succinct...Dave's tools are the best on the market.

At the recent Oregon Symposium I watched two demo turners use their SRG like a finishing tool. I asked Dave at the D-Way booth about this and he did a demo. I bought one right then. At home I've now made about 30 coffee scoops for sale and I use the SRG to get the handles ready for sanding. Only use the skew or Dave's detail gouge for a few touches then it's done. Being narrower than my large Sorby, SRG, D-Way's tool can be used in this way.

I have been very satisfied with all of the D-Way tools and own almost every one that Dave makes. The are all very well made and hold an edge for a long time. I am very happy with this roughing gouge and it is my go to tool for roughing spindle work.

Just getting back into wood turning after 40 years and needed new tools. After hours of research and some wasted money I settled on D-Way. These are awesome tools. Thanks Dave for the great service.

A new roughing gouge was needed after the flat tine snapped on my old Sorby gouge. The D-Way 1/2 inch round bar into the handle is never going to snap. The D-Way performance is excellent right out of the box.

D-Way makes great tools. This roughing gouge has a 1/2" diam. shank and is extra strong!

Being well impressed with the quality of my previous D-Way purchases, I ordered and received my new spindle roughing gouge.
This tool really lives up to expectations. Instead of being made with flat steel which is then shaped, this gouge is tooled from solid bar stock just like my other D-Way gouges. With other roughing gouges, the tine is really a weak point, but the tine on this tool is made from solid bar stock measuring 1/2" in diameter. It comes sharpened and ready to use. So far, I've rounded or trued various kinds and sizes of wood and still find no need to sharpen it, though the time will come.
I'm delighted with all the tools I've received from Dave and will continue to turn to him first when I need more toys......oops, I meant TOOLS.

I own 8 roughing gouges , looking for the one I consider to be my go too for roughing . Having all different makers and brands ranging in price from 50.00 to 160.00 dollars this one exceeds them all . For me it was a natural fit . With a 8" handle it was so much fun to use . I played with for about 6 hours on every type of wood in my shop from pine to cocobolo and my last piece was a piece of iron wood . only then did I have to sharpen it . All I did was hone it with a 600 grit diamond stone , and it was like it just came out of the box . Proud To own it ! Thank You .
