Re: carpenter's gouge vs carving gouge

There are hooped heavy gouges for firmer type work and timberframing.

They're more or less made with a thicker cross section and stronger bolster to be tolerant of being hit. Think bulk work vs. fine work.

You can mallet carving tools, but not like the type you'd do running around a job site.
