The Robert Sorby Texturing Tool enhances turned pieces by producing a myriad of different textures. It can be used to create unique effects that alter the tactile and visual qualities of your bowls, hollow forms, goblets or boxes perfect for adding that individual mark to your work. Orange peel, striated and ribbed patterns are possible using this tool. Some of these effects are subtle, some are coarse and some are aggressive depending on the angle of the cutter as it makes contact with your work and the amount of pressure applied. The effects vary considerably depending on the type of wood used, whether it is a bowl, spindle or end grain work and the angle at which the tool is presented. Further variations are possible with the application of dyes, liming waxes and flame scorching, all of which create interesting contrasts. A useful tip: choose the pattern you want and texture a defined area, this may be the rim or a band around the bowl. The interplay between the textured and non textured areas can be stunning!
Available as just the cutter or as complete tool with handle.
