3/8" Ashley Iles Bead Forming Tool
I have been using my 3/8” Ashley Iles Bead Forming Tool for years, then Mark Baker brought a set down for his course and now everyone wants one.
These tools are used flute down. Present the tool at 90° to the spinning timber with the handle down, then raise the handle and push forward gently to make contact and form the the bead. Stop the cut as soon as the whole arc is in contact with the wood. Easy to use for perfect beads but best practiced on the wood you are going to turn away anyway.
