I made a couple of small (~1/4″ diameter/ 6mm) tools using some M2 High Speed Steel that I bought online for a few dollars. I made some handles and ground them into 1) a skew chisel, and 2) a detail tool (flute-less gouge?). These tools are quite useful for working on smaller pieces. Making your own tools is a great way to make woodturning even more affordable!
