  1. Project Tool Acquisition

    Posted by Gregg Miller on May 14th 2023

    Years ago, I purchased beading tools from a different manufacturer, with satisfactory results. Following my research and planning for future projects, I purchased this 1/8" beading tool based on other professional woodturners' recommendations and videos. I also just purchased the 8" handle with 3/8" reducer. I know I'll be very pleased with my results with this beader in my tool arsenal.

  2. 3 beading tools

    Posted by Chuck Silber on Mar 4th 2023

    I purchased the 1/8, 1/4, & 3/8 beading tools. All items are exactly as advertised and perform just like the web site videos! Excellent quality and workmanship. I an enjoying the tools. Thank you.

  3. Works well

    Posted by Frank on Dec 27th 2021

    I’ve been using the 1/4” tool and now have the 1/8” they work as designed; perfect symmetrical beads each time.

  4. Five Stars

    Posted by Unknown on Sep 27th 2021

    Started beading by using a modified detail gouge, then saw Harvey Meyer using D-Way 1/8 inch tool. Ordered one, then checked the mailbox daily here in Australia. Excitement plus when it arrived. Have now used it for a basket weave illusion - fantastic to use, fantastic to control, and fantastic result. Will be demonstrating it at a local club, you need a distributor in Australia. Thank you.

  5. The 1/8" beading tool makes the basket illusion easy

    Posted by Don Wilson on Aug 25th 2021

    The D-Way beading tools along with the video make the basket illusion much easier and cleaner than other tools I have used.

  6. Easy to learn how to use the tool

    Posted by Pete Passof on Mar 19th 2021

    Just getting started with basket weave illusion techniques. Started out with a Sorby 1/4" beading tool but did not like the results. By watching videos, I learned about D-Way tools and soon ordered one without the handle. Have completed two projects and like what I see. I like using the tool over segmented pieces which avoids the issue of dealing with end grain.

  7. 1/8" and 3/16" beading tools

    Posted by David swain on Dec 17th 2020

    Both have performed perfectly. Sure beats trying to turn them the old way. I'll be looking to buy more D-Way tools in the future. Customer service has been super.
    Many thanks

  8. A joy to use

    Posted by Robert on Jun 19th 2020

    As with all of Dave's tools, the beading tools perform exactly as described and are a joy to use. They don't need a handle.

  9. The best beading tools, ever.

    Posted by Ernie Bean on Feb 2nd 2020

    These are by far the best tools for beading. They are easy to use and leave a smooth surface that is ready for finish.
    I also find that the tools stay sharper than the other beading tools I have tried.

  10. Beading Tool

    Posted by Unknown on Aug 12th 2018
