Make Your Own Woodturning Tool-2 Set Kit plus Sharpening Block in Black Oxide


If you’ve seen my tools and thought you’d like to make your own, this kit contains what you need to make both the standard size tool that uses 1/4" square bits and the small tool that uses 1/8" square bits. It also includes the sharpening block that you can use with your bench grinder to keep the bits sharp. Everything you need is included except the handles. Simply make the handles you want to complete your tools.

The tool body is 4140 chrome-moly steel. The standard tool measures 9" long from the handle with a 3" tang. The main body is a 1/2" hex and the tang is 7/16 diameter. The micro tool measures 6 1/2" long from the handle with a 2" long tang. The main body is a 3/8" hex and the tang is 5/16 diameter. They have a black-oxide protective coating and the cutting bits are cobalt steel. These will cut like a laser. You can watch several videos of my tool being used on YouTube. Just go to and search for SegmentedTurner.

This kit includes the two tool bodies, Allen screws, Allen wrenches, cutting bits, magnets for holding the wrench in the handles (if you chose to do so), high strength epoxy packs and mixing sticks and some instructions about how to make your handles and attach them to the body, and some pointers on how to use the tool. The sharpening block comes with the block and thumb screw. It is made of steel and measures 1" by 2 1/2" and is 5/8" thick. If you’d like to review the instructions before you buy just drop me a convo and I’ll send the .PDF files.
