The Easy Rougher is a carbide cutter woodturning tool that addresses fatigue, safety, and efficiency like no other type of tool on the market. Designed to be kept flat on the tool rest and level to the floor, the Easy Rougher will effortlessly hog away massive amounts of material for any woodturning process - without the need for sharpening. The tool design provides support directly beneath the cutting edge, thus transferring the cutting pressure downward. This allows the lathe to "take the pounding" that you would normally suffer when using a conventional bowl gouge for roughing. No more ‘white knuckling’ a bowl gouge!

The handles are produced from American Rock Maple and stained red so are easily identified as the roughing tools, with a copper rather than brass ferrule and the laser-cut stainless-steel bar means that you never have to worry about your tools rusting ever again. The micro, mini and midi rougher have 9.5mm (3/8in) bars while the full and pro-size tools have 12.7mm (1/2in) bar.
