These tools are excellent for hollowing spoons, bowls and other carving projects.
The dog-leg gouges are designed for hollowing hard to reach areas, such as the converging long grain on the hollowed bottom of carved bowls. The smaller dog-leg gouge is also a very efficient tool for hollowing the bowls of spoons and ladles. It is also popular with kuksa carvers. (Kuksa is a wooden coffee cup, a Sami tradition from northern Sweden.)
