Not long ago I had to come up with a way shape an inside radius. I would have used a spoke shave but I don’t have one. As usual I turned to Lumberjocks for inspiration. I remembered that our good buddies Mafe , Tim , and TrBlu made something called a Pencil Shave. After looking at their designs as well as a few others I made one of my own. Here’s what I used; two (2) cabinet door knobs, eight (8) brass spacers, two (2) pieces of copper tubing, one (1) pencil sharpener blade, an...
I’ve been wanting to build a shave horse for a while now and with the purchase of a draw knife, a shave horse is now needed. I used an old oak pallet and a single tree. Go check it out.
Scraper shaves my wayat the end it’s an iron… A iron is what it is all about! So here we are.A scraper has only a value if it can scrape.At the end it’s a iron, a iron attached to a comfortable handle, a tool, the stone age man, the cave man, working, working with the wood, trying to do, to do better, better than last! Why? It’s a call, the call of the caveman who painted those wonderful paintings in colors of the earth on the walls in his cave, now refined from ...
Scraper shaves my waySpin the wheel… Last time we left the scraper shaves in oil!This time we will give them finish and set them up, and then the journey will be at its end… This is my favorite finish tour.From left:Sisal wheel, this helps to clean up and empty for dirt and dust in the cracks and holes, it should actually be used before the oil.Next is compound with a high grid so this added to the wheel gives a finish that is extremely fine, I have two wheels, one for dark ...

Scraper shaves my wayopen the mouth… Part four of the tour! Even the title sounds scary; do not fear this has nothing to do with dentists! So here we are it really starts to look like tools.And wouuu do I love that! I had a bad surprise again due to my lack of planning…The irons were too wide on the little shaves.But this is not a problem, just a grinding task. So back to the disc sander. Remember to dip all the time, so you do not burn it.(If you burn the steel ...
Scraper shaves my waywhen the going gets tough… Part three of the tour! Even you disturb me Swirt! Yes you! I just got the ‘Motel of the mysteries’ and I love this book! Have you ever wondered how an archeologist figures out what the artifacts he or she discovers are, and how they were used those many centuries ago? David Macaulay has written an explanation that will inform all of us. He imagines that in 4022, a mediocre amateur archeologist fell into a sink hole wh...
Scraper shaves my wayShape up the body With my favorite Supersander I now get the chance to shape the handles, this is my favorite part.I choose to go a little more organic than they usually look, this for two reasons; I like it and find it beautiful, and second I find these organic shapes wonderful for the hands to use.I guess it could be called bone shaped. After the details with smaller sander wheels. Flattening the sole. Also the small soles. And here we are next step.My Go...
Scraper shaves my waymaking a bunch of scraper shaves Lately I have been making quite a few new handles for old hammers and axes, and the finish has been made with a card scraper.This tool, the scraper starts to show its face to me more and more – when a large burr it can produce shavings, and with a fine burr it can make dust. But most of all it brings a finish that you can never get with sandpaper, it brings out the life of the wood. So when I lately saw several people here on L...
