Hook Tool Howto
A short how-to describes the usage of the woodturning hook
Some guys find woodturning with classic tools like the hook tool complicated or dangerous. But the handling is no book of seven seals. Important is that you have to lean the phase of the tool always against the wood. This prevents the tool of digging in.
