    Hi Guys

    I have now completed the pencil box with exception finger indent, I do not have any gouges?

    What size of gouges are the most useful. This is the first project I have made that has needed one.

    David I know Paul used a No 7 Gouges on the box lid, and I’m sure on his blog he said a 1 inch gouge covered just about everything

    Paul mentioned a #7 sweep.

    Thanks for that I guess to finish off my pencil box I will have to invest in a gouge I think for now just the one size

    The gouge Paul used in his DVD, is that also a #7 sweep? I really need one for general work, but I don’t know which.

    Numbers 5,6,or 7 will work for this. 5 is a handy side I like. A 3/4″ wide is wide enough but a 1″ is good for larger carvings we will need on projects down the road.

    Here is a link for the Faithfull brand of chisel sold here in the UK. I have used them and they take and keep a good edge. Price is right at under £6. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Faithfull-Straight-Gouge-Carving-Chisel-25-4mm-1in-/290764394668?pt=UK_Hand_Tools_Equipment&hash=item43b2e890ac&_uhb=1

    Thanks for the info. Is a number 7 (1 inch) also convenient for projects like spoons?

    It certainly is, Michael. Tons of other stuff too.

    Paul,

    Can you suggest a budget-friendly gouge for your US students?  A quick google search yields no US sellers for the Faithfull gouges.
