Parting Tools   Pyramid Tools   Platter Scrapers   Chatter Tools   Bowl Scrapers   Deep Hollowing Tool Set

I have been manufacturing wood turning tools for three years to meet the needs of myself, students and local area turners who have found the commercial offering inadequate.

All tools have domestic hardwood handles finished to 180 grit for better grip. Tools have been waxed for protection. Brass ferrules are .060 wall thickness and one inch in length. Tool faces are unpolished and tool finish only.

Orders are accepted though www.jlrodgers.com. Payment is through PayPal account.

A portion from tool sales support the turning program at Mt. Diablo Adult Education Woodturning Center. For more information regarding my work, please email me at
