    Two handed gouge for violin plate carving

    Hi,
    here is gouge I adapted to be handled with both hands for more strength and to prevent blisters when rough carving violin plates.



    All the details on my website :
    La Belle Note - A two handed gouge

    Please, give me feedback !
    Thanks,
    Cheers !
    Christophe

    Very nice work Christope, I assume that is a copper cap? Was that on the original gouge?

    Hi Steve,
    No the original gouge had a steel cap, on an ash hexagonal handle. It is a french "Auriou" gouge (they are more famous for their handmade rasp).
    Cheers
    Cheers !

    I love the way you combined three kinds of wood for the handle. Nice work Christophe.
