    If you carve your gonna love this vise! If you turn wood and carve you’ll be beside yourself with the variety of projects you can make. Carving vise is very stable and the ease of working from any angle is simply a joy! Hats off to Trent Bosh Tools for this ingenious Innovian.

  5. Stephen Stromstad (verified owner)

    Arrived sooner than expected, just as ordered and works very well.

  6. CHARLES (verified owner)

    Very well made. I never thought I would need anything like this, but after using it I now wonder how I ever got along without it. The single spot to tighten makes it very handy.

  7. Gary Taylor (verified owner)

    Love love love it. Trent is da Man

  8. Debbie W. (verified owner)

    Amazing tool. It’s like having 2 more hands. You can rotate your work in ANY position needed.

  9. Thomas Whiting (verified owner)

    Saw this in a John Holly demo at our club’s meeting and knew I wanted it. It will come to use with turning and carving.

  10. Stan M. (verified owner)

    Works great. I can hold the piece where I need to pyrography, carve or paint.

  11. Todd S. (verified owner)

    This was an absolute necessity for the various carving and coloring I was doing to projects. It’s nice that you can either insert the bar into your lathe’s banjo, or you can keep it in the handy bracket (of which I screwed to a bench in my workstation).

  12. Robert F. (verified owner)

    Works as advertised, well made.

  13. Tyler (verified owner)

    This is an incredibly handy and versatile tool. You will think up several more uses for it after you buy it and start using it. Very well made and thought out.

  14. Michael A. (verified owner)

    Does everything that I expected it to. In fact it’s better than I expected as the machining tolerances are such that even small adjustments are easy to make without effort. Exactly what one would expect from Trent Bosch.

  15. Michael O’Brien (verified owner)

    Have not tried it but it looks well designed and well made.

  16. raymond scesa (verified owner)

    Hold bowl just right for adding an inlay

  17. Benjamin Kesler (verified owner)

    Awesome set of tooling. High quality, heavy duty. Have used the tool several time already and it is great for orienting a turning to any position necessary.

    Excellent design and fabrication! And it almost goes without saying, the support from Trent & crew is top-notch-fantastic!

  20. Mitchell (verified owner)

    There’s only 1 handle to make multi directional movements.

  21. Alan Price (verified owner)

    After using one in your Sept class I knew I would be buying one.very good useful using glue blocks etc it can be used to hold anything.a very good third hand

  22. Kieran Goodman (verified owner)

    This stand is incredible! The carving stand allows you to reach all angles of your piece and it’s so easy to move it from your lathe to your stand and then back on your lathe without having to remove it from your chuck tand it becoming off centered. Awesome design, sturdy, and heavy duty materials make this the last stand you’ll ever need to help bring added details to any of your turnings or carving pieces.

  23. Tom FRY (verified owner)

    A great product that fills the bill for allowing 2 handed embellishments of vessels mounted in a scroll chuck.

  24. Joanne Miner (verified owner)

    Rock solid clamping at any angle.

  25. Mark Sfirri (verified owner)

    I have been turning small objects with my Talon chuck that required some carving afterward. I thought that maybe a device should be made that could hold the chuck in the banjo so that I could look right at the piece to be carved without having to carve bent over and carving at an awkward angle. I proposed this idea to Brent English at Robust and he said that Trent Bosch already makes such a device. It is game changing for me. Beautifully designed and totally adjustable.

    Trent Bosch’s Versatile Carving Stand is exactly what I imagined – functional to a tee, easy to use, has a good feel and heft, easy to operate – in general a purchase well worth it ! Only con is it was well protected with a light oil that I wiped off with shop alcohol – not a bad con eh ?

  27. Eric Schield (verified owner)

    I purchased thuns for my Laguna 1836 lathe. The post fit was perfect. Trent always makes his tools over the top sturdy. This chuck base is no exception. He has developed the perfect platform for putting that detail on your turning piece without having to hold the piece with one hand. Very pleased with the purchase.

  28. Marcus Parker (verified owner)

    I’m really enjoying having the ability of using both hands to carve . This carving stand is great.

  29. Daniel Wright (verified owner)

    Outstanding for repairs and inlays. I’m sure I’ll find other uses. I highly recommend and wish I would have purchased this sooner.

  30. Ken Ragsdale (verified owner)

    Love this carving stand! Why did I wait so long to get one! Very well made. Thanks, Trent!!

  31. Jack T. (verified owner)

    I am more of a carver than a turner. I mounted a semipermanent block on which I use double stick tape to hold my relief carvings while I carve them.

  32. Tim Dunbar (verified owner)

    this stand took my carving to a new level mostly because i can get my work in a comfortable position and not need to bend in all the weird ways you must do when just mounted on your spindle, it is well made very robust and a joy to use thanks Trent Bosch

  33. Ken Jenkins (verified owner)

    Well made carving stand, very sturdy. It makes it a lot easier to carve when you are not trying to hold onto the piece too. It is adjustable in just about every angle you can imagine.
