Jeff,
I think one of these(4) will be suitable for your "work". Kindly advise your selection and Stan (mrcook4570) will start on your commissioned piece.

I like handle #2. It is simple. You don't want the handle to take away from your artwork, and by being simple and fluid, you have options as to where you want to hold on.

Jeff, your "unleashed" masterpiece is being worked in the design of your tool handle. Stay tuned and we may hear from Stan as to what his laser can do.

Peter,
You have really come up with a great product, I've used the Rotondo on really hard to turn material and the carbide shaves a finish with the ease of slicing butter. The round cutter is much wider than some of my other carbide tools which allow a greater surface area finish. The handle & tool are well balanced with just the right length/weight. Although I love my skews, this tool ranks right up there in my tool arsenal.

Thank you for the kind words. My goal is to provide "service" and win over, one customer at a time.

I've been using this tool for bowl turning almost exclusively now and I absolutely love it!!! I am even considering selling my bowl gouges.

Full disclosure: I have absolutely no relation to the maker of Rotondo tool and reap no benefits whatsoever promoting it.

Happy customer
