  • Gouges worth trying

    Got a 1/2' #5 Denny palm gouge a while back and have been giving it a going over. Absolutly love it. If your in the market for a gouge you might give one a try. I'm going to order a couple more (probably a 7 and 9) next time I order stuff.

    Please tell us where you got the Denny Gouge? Always looking for different tool plus I may need a fix before long!

          Ed,
          Checked out the Gouges they look amazing I will be purchasing a couple of them in the near future. Does anyone know if or where in Canada the Denny gouges and knives are sold.

              I just bought some Denny gouges from Little Shavers at a show in Monroe. I love the way they fit my hand and they cut perfect. For the money, I haven't found a better gouge (IMHO). I have three different sets of hand gouges, and these are now my favorites. Thanks for the advise Rick.
              Cheers
              Ric

                I have a 3/4 #9 Auriou gouge I got from Dale I just tried it today and I like it. I haven't used large gouges in the past so is a new experience...but this is a nice tool.

                    I hope to buy the whole set but the way Denny is coming out with new ones I may not make it.

                      Here is a link to Denny's site.

                      http://users.sisna.com/yxz/dennyknife/index.htm

                      I love my v gouge designed by Peter Ortel ("PO VG") for roughing out carvings. I can use the v to make semi stop cuts and then lay the tool on it's side almost like a flat gouge.

                        Funny you should mention the Ortel V tool .... just got one a week or two ago from LittleShavers (stocks the complete denny line) and have to using it, as you do, as a roughout tool. My original purpose for getting it was to try it for setting eye sockets, but haven't gotten around to that yet.

                          That is beautiful.

                          I am chaffing at the bit to get back to the scroll saw, Unfortunately the urban renewal project "Redoing the deck" has taken over all of my time.

                          Excellent contrast not only in wood choices (LOVE the bocote), but also 90 degree corners on the bocote and radius corners on the maple. Very nice!
