This is my first attempt at making a spokeshave, I saw Karson’s Spokeshave class in the projects and a friend gave me the blade over a year ago.

I like it very much. I see a lot of purpleheart used by people on LJ. Care to tell us what properties it has that makes it good for spokeshaves?

I don’t know that it is a good wood for a shave , I had some purpleheart, had the blade, and saw Karsons post on shaves. I’ll let everyone know how it holds up.

Great job on the spokeshave, Jeff! I love the purpleheart. If you’re going to use a tool a lot, might as well make it pretty. :o)

Have your say...
