Our Wood Turning Hollowing Tool is made from 5/8's cold rolled steel and is offered in two configurations; one designed for the lathe running in forward rotation and one for the lathe rotating in reverse. Our Wood Turning Hollowing Tool is made with an outrigger to counteract rotational forces and comes with an adjustable thickness gauge to give a visual representation of wall thickness. In addition to an ergonomic and user friendly design, the hollowing tool comes with an adjustable M42 HSS scraper. The cutter is easily removable for sharpening and pivots to reach under moderately wide hollow form shoulders. The D-Way Hollowing Tool allows for a more comfortable position at the lathe.
***Choose from Lathe Rotation Forward or Lathe Rotation Reverse

I really wanted to try hollowing; however, I just don't have the funds or the lathe to justify buying a rig. This allowed me to work on some medium size hollow forms, bigger than an ornament not quite 8 in. I would have to say I love this tool. Definitely order a second cutter right away. Took mine off to sharpen and lost it in the shavings. Took out the spare and keep on turning. I will have to find the original once I clean the shop.

After watching Dave's video on hollowing several times I called to ask a few questions about the tool and his hollowing techniques. Dave was busy with another customer at the time but took the time to call me back and answer all my questions about his hollowing tool. I've only been turning for a couple of years now and never having hollowed before I was pleased when the tool performed as easily as his video shows. My first two hollow forms were of uniform thickness. This tool has provided me with a new and fun skill to add to my wood turning projects.

I love this tool! It is very well built and simple. I have seen all sorts of "contraptions" for hollowing...some involve a specially designed banjo or using the tailstock and having all sorts of extra bars and rods for lasers to mount. I dont feel like being Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible hanging from wires with lasers and such just to hollow a form. This tool is simple with a simple design for wall thickness indication and the outrigger is perfect for dealing with the twisting of the tool. Its badass like everything else of D-Way. I didn't like the foam pad on the arm support, so I glued a piece of leather in its place and the tool is absolutely perfect now. Dave has a great video showing and explaining the tool and how to use it. Shipping was insanely fast and Dave really handles business...I have Thompson and Carter tools, but once I tried D-Way...its the ONLY place I go to for turning tools now. A swan neck hollowing tool will go for up to $150 with no out rigger, no arm brace and a lesser quality cutting tip...for $35 more I have a superior tool. Thanks, Dave...great design, great quality, and great price!

It's ability to remove wood and leave a smooth surface ready for sanding saves time and labor. I wasn't bothered with catches or gouges. It is really fun to use.

I am impressed by the quality and the way this tool makes it seem so easy.
I ordered the reverse tool and it really does help to make things a bit more visible. I also really thought how simple the boinger idea was for keeping the thickness under control and it really works well. I may have to invest in a bit better tool rest, but the tool is awesome no complaints. Best turning investment I have made all year.

I always worry when I buy tools that you have seen the expert use. Is it really as easy as that? I can honestly say that this works beautifully , it is easy to use and the cut was very smooth. Laser set ups look so cumbersome and this is so straight forward. Great tool.

ingenious both with the outrigger and the spring depth gauge. It was set up and ready to go except the spring has an inner part that I didn't find right away and tried drilling out the receiving hole to get the spring to fit. once I realized there was an inner part to the spring, it became much easier. Works perfectly, I've done 2 bowls so far and am very pleased.
