This webinar just might change your opinion of the spokeshave. They come in all sorts of configurations and styles—flat or curved sole, metal or wood—that make them ideal for shaping and smoothing wood. Putting a well-tuned shave to work, however, reveals so much more about the character of wood than any handplane can. These nimble tools get you close to the material, giving you an increased awareness of wood structure while adding speed and sensitivity to any shaping task. In this webinar, you will learn all about the variations in the tools, as well as the how, why, and where they are used. You will also learn about tuning and sharpening them to get the best results.
Keep an eye on this space for Galbert’s upcoming article, “Spokeshave Essentials,” where he talks about choosing and using shaves, sharpening, and shaping methods.
