  • 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

                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.

                      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.

                          I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

                          John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

                          Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                          I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

                          This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                          I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                          Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                          How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...
