    This tool was a curiosity for a while. When I got it, I had to try it out right away. I was more than surprised by how easy it was to use and the details that could be done with it. It would be a good thing to have more than one size. I am sure that a set of three would be well used.

    Comments about Crown Skewchigouge :

    I have had my Skewchigouge for about a year but have seldom used it. I'm a bit of a purist so tend to use my skew chisels. I also have the Sorby Spindlemaster which makes similar claims of "no catch", "easy coving", etc. This evening I was finishing up a bud vase that I had already shaped but was a bit out of line from the center hole drilling. I tried the Spindlemaster, and in a moment of inattention "bang" , a catch. I broke out the Skewchigouge to try to repair it, and to do the rest of the surface that hadn't been damaged. Easy, and effective on the curved surface. I'm sold. In fact I came to this site tonight to see if you made a larger version. I would have given the fifth star if you did, as it would be nice to have one for smoothing longer curves so as not to leave the slight irregularities that the narrow radius leaves with my elderly hands.

    I got this for doing Pens on the lathe. It is now my favorite tool for all turning. It works great for putting coves in a spindle, general turning for pens, and even works well for small bowls.
