The shop-made spokeshave is a fine addition to your tool kit. The wood bodied ’shave has the blade positioned flat to the sole, rather than angled as in its steel-bodied counterpart. Sometimes referred to as razor type spokeshave, these are the ultimate of a low angle blade. Spokeshaves are extremely versatile. They can work corners or smooth out chair seats. They are used to create arrows or finish fine house trim and moulding. In this class, every student demonstrates their newly crafted tool they leave class. While compared to the block plane blade, it is complicated with the addition of threaded rod posts that serve to hold the blade. The additional of leveling screws give precise adjustment that makes this tool a joy to make and an ever bigger joy to use.
