    You'rr welcome, Chuck, but the other members are the ones with the real answers to your needs...

    Be sure to post pics and details of your tool building and projects. Others will then be able to benefit too.

    Chuck, I learned how to make hook tools from Alan Lacer, the "Skew Master" guy. I have made several of these, and they are pretty simple to make. Done properly, they work VERY well for cutting end grain in tight places, like the interior bottom/top of end grain boxes. Here is a link to the tutorial Alan has on making his version of the hook tool:

    Chuck, you might check Darell Feldmate's aroundthewoods site. I have made some hook tools out of 1/4" oil hardened drill rod, so that they would fit in my Oland tool shaft. I have not used the tool all that much but what I have done the tool has worked quite well. The aroundthewoods site has been very helpful for me as I have just been turning about a year. He has several tools that he makes that are very easy to make and very useful.
