Easy Wood Tools offer a very different turning experience

Easy Wood are carbide tipped tools which deliver a very fine finish to your turning
Easy wood tools come in four major types. 

The Easy Rougher is ideal for removing large quantities of timber and because of the unique square shape can plunge cut into the timber or in a sweeping motion across the timber.  It is unique in that it can cut using the side of the cutter as well.  Very useful for cutting recesses.

The Easy Detailer has diamond shaped cutter blade which is ideal for beads and getting into tight corners.  Because of the design it can also cut from to side.

The Easy Finisher uses a round carbide tip and delivers a beautiful finish to the inside and outsides of bowls.

The Easy Hollower comes in 3 different curve profiles and with a small ring tip and thin swan neck gives a great finish

All of the tips are replaceable carbide tip cutters. There are four different sizes of tools Mini, Midi, Full Size and Professional. When the cutter dulls, rotate it to a fresh edge and replace it when needed.  They are designed to effortlessly remove massive amounts of material on any wood turning project or take a fine finishing cut. 

 

The on-line shopping cart is easy to use and completely secure.
We have added a large range of Acrylic Pen Blanks at only $3.00 each.  Check out the range of colours.

There is also a great range of timber pen blanks to choose from.

We have added a Video section which includes the videos we have throughout the site which discuss and demonstrate the products we offer.
 
We have some beautiful timbers in stock in both rounds and spindles as well as timber for boxes.  This includes Silky Oak, Black Bean, Walnut, Silver Ash, Blue Gum Jarrah, Rosewood and a number of others. 

Please give us a call on 03 9727 0611 if we can help in sourcing any specific materials.
 

 

The ConChuck

The ConChuck is a Split pin chuck and is unique in that enables any shape of wood to be held on the lathe with a single drill  of a 22mm hole.


 For more detail please see the ConChuck on the left hand side pane.
We have included a video on how the ConChuck works as well.

Stone Inlay in Wood

 

  One of the areas where we are providing master classes is in the process of using Stone inlay in turned timber.  We are happy to provide these classes to woodworking clubs at no charge.

 We now have a range of inlay stone available for inlay into turned bowls and platters.  If you  haven't tried it please come and talk to us about how to start.  There is also a document on the  Stone Inlay page of our website which will help you understand the process.

 

There are a range of different types of stones available which have been sourced from Mount Isa. These include Malachite, different shades of Calcite, Azurite and a range of others which give a great range of colours.  

At Pop's Shed we sort, crush and size the stones into four different sizes for your projects.

We also have a range of Dremel tools and attachments for those who are into carving and aiming to embed stone or embellish with wood dyes. 

We have added a video on how to inlay stones into turned timber.  Select Stone Inlay from the left hand pane to view the video.

We are now running courses in doing Stone inlay and if you are interested please send us an email.
