SHOP PROJECTS / SHOP-MADE HAND TOOLSShop-Made SpokeshavesPreviousNext There's no better way to create smooth, even curves than using a tool designed specifically for that purpose.And you can't beat the satisfying results when it's a tool you've made yourself.
A spokeshave is the perfect choice for smoothing out a convex or concave surface quickly and easily.Buying a spokeshave is an option, but there's nothing like the look and feel of a wood-bodied spokeshave.
And having a pair is best, one with a flat bottom for convex curves and another with a curved bottom for concave surfaces.The body of a spokeshave is nothing more than a piece of wood with a narrow opening at the bottom for the blade.
This throat opening widens toward the top, creating a bed for the blade and clearance for shavings.Trying to create this shaped opening from a single piece could be a real challenge.The solution is to make each spokeshave from two parts, a narrow front piece and a wider rear piece.
Using two parts makes it easy to create a precise opening and an angled bed for the blade.SELECT YOUR PLAN PACKAGEUnit Imperial $9.95Learn more Metric...
