I’ve had a great initial production run on the new traditional spokeshave. I’m nearly sold out at the moment, with the last 2 now available in my shop. It’s been fantastic showing this tool off and the feedback has been encouraging. I recently had the pleasure of demonstrating this tool and putting it into the hands of many people at the Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event at the Braxton Brewery in Covington, KY. It was a blast! You know what I mean if you were there. Hope they put it on again next year.
This shave is being produced in the manner that the original shaves were made in the 19th century. All of its initial shaping is produced by machinery. Below is one step of many in the process. All the final fitting and finishing is done by hand.
