Hollowing

Hollow your forms with confidence! Our unique Easy Hollower® tool design gives you a wide range of access, from just-under-the-rim to deep, unseen cavities. Hollow easy, hollow safely.

Hollow forms can be tricky for turners because you can’t see inside the form that you're turning, and chips and blowouts can happen quickly. But we make turning hollow forms easier and safer with our square tool bar and three distinct hollowing tools, in four sizes: Mini, Mid, Full, and Pro.

Handles are one-of-a-kind grained American Maple (Mini/Mid/Full) and American Hickory (Pro), with a copper ferrule that gives strength.

All Mid, Full, and Pro Hollowers come with a standard carbide cutter already installed and a hex key that fits the mounting screw.

Mini Hollowers come with a negative rake carbide cutter already installed and a hex key

that fits the mounting screw.

Easy Hollower® #3 - This curve lets you get right up to the inside lip of your work.

MINI HOLLOWERS

Hollow forms can be especially difficult when your medium is a four-inch piece of wood and your tools are full sized. With EWT’s mini-sized hollowing tools, turning small items like ornaments, mini vases, and other hollow shapes is safer and easier.

 

Our Mini Hollowers are designed specifically for small hollow forms. At 15.25 inches, each Mini Hollower has a straight, slightly angled (45 degrees), or L-hook (90 degrees) configuration on a square-shaped bar with easy-to-grip American maple handle. 

The mini hollowers come equipped with negative rake cutters for better control with a less aggressive cut; the negative rake minimizes the severity of unexpected catches that can occur when creating a hollow form. Their square-shaped tool design provides a shorter learning curve, too; the resultant parallel turning geometry means fewer catches and kick-backs overall.

Mini Hollowers are sold separately or in a three-piece, felt-lined kit in a clear acrylic slide box.

Our high quality lathe turning tools make turning safer, faster, and more fun! Whether you're a newbie or a pro, we have the best tools for your next project.

  • Easy to use: Unlike traditional steel, our carbide-tipped tools are always held flat on the rest and parallel to the floor. No bevels, no vertical angles to worry about.

  • Short learning curve: Cut left, right, or straight on, and you're successfully and safely turning within minutes of picking up the tool. 

  • Our own carbide: We manufacture our carbide cutters using a proprietary recipe to make them the hardest, sharpest, and longest lasting in the business.

  • Lower cost of ownership: All you need is a lathe and an Easy Wood Tools turning tool and you can start making. You don't need to buy a grinding kit or sharpening system or multiple tools to achieve your desired result.

  • No sharpening: Never sharpen your tools again! When one side of the cutter gets dull, just rotate it to a new surface. When you've used all the sides, simply replace it with a new cutter. 

  • Safer: Our square tool bar design and resultant turning geometry means fewer catches and kick-backs.

  • Unique Handle Design: Our unique handle design puts turning pressure into the tool rest so you don't tire as quickly, with two natural hand positions for greater comfort.

  • Handmade in America: Our team of highly skilled men and women use time-tested techniques and American-sourced woods, metal, and carbide to make our high quality tools.

  • We focus only on turning: EWT sells ONLY turning tools and accessories, so we know how to make turning safer, easier, better, and more fun.​
