Bit, Spoon

Bit, Spoon 

A gouge-shaped bit with the end turned up like the business end of a spoon. These are the preferred bits of the chairmaker, because they do well in shallow holes (they don't elevate shavings out of deep holes), they can be corrected and steered if the angle is off, and they do not have a center pike or screw that may poke through the other side.
