    Easy to use

    Easy Wood Tools are easy to use. Unlike traditional steel turning tools, these carbide tipped tools are always held flat on the tool rest and parallel to the floor. No bevels, no vertical angles to worry about. This simplicity means that you now enjoy a short learning curve. Cut left, right, or straight on, and you’re successfully and safely turning within minutes of picking up the tool.

    Ready to use

    Easy Wood Tools come ready for use straight out of the box. Each tool is already fitted with a fresh carbide tip ready to go. All you need is a lathe, a chunk of wood and you are turning. Each tool is also supplied with a hex key ready for when you need it. 

    No sharpening ever!

    Never sharpen your tools again! When one side of the cutter gets dull, just rotate it to a new edge. When you’ve used all four edges, simply replace it with a new cutter. You do not need to buy any sharpening gear whatsoever. You do not need to spend weeks learning how to sharpen an edge.  Great if you are new to turning or simply can’t be bothered.

    Negative rake tips

    Easy Wood Tools patented Negative Rake Carbide Cutters virtually eliminate chipping and catches when turning resins, acrylic, and other composite materials. Excellent results when turning very hard woods, and very smooth finishing cuts. Very effective for hollowing, allows for smooth catch-free passes.

    Radius carbide cutters

    Some tools in the Easy Wood Rougher range accept carbide tips that feature a small radius. These slightly curved cutters give you a little more wiggle when cutting shapes. Check the product specifications to see what models have this feature.

    Economical

    When you choose Easy Wood, all you need is a lathe and an Easy Wood Tools turning tool and you can start turning. You don’t need to buy a grinding kit or sharpening system or multiple tools to achieve your desired result. This is a great economic advantage if you are just starting out, or you just want to add a turned element to your broader woodworking.

    Safe

    Easy Wood Tools square tool bar design and resultant turning geometry means fewer catches and kickbacks. In addition, the unique Easy Wood handle design puts turning pressure into the tool rest, so you don’t tire as quickly. Turn safely for hours, late into the night.
