I made a large spokeshave with a Lee Valley hardware and blade kit, now I’m making a smaller curved one. I would like to have a harder wear plate than the wood, any ideas? I was thinking of ivory, mother of pearl or corian….. Ebony? And I was just going to epoxy it in. Any thoughts??? It needs to be soft enough to machine and smooth with wood tools, I just want it harder and slicker than the wood… the pictures are of the first one I made. Thanks
