Bought a Lee Valley kit for the large wooden spokeshave and finished this in a few hours. Made from scrap walnut, I really enjoyed this and may make another with laminated woods to give a little style :)

Finish is tung oil.

Again, very enjoyable for $35.00 and some scrap wood. The kit even comes with the tap to thread your post holes for the adjustment mechanism.

Very nice work. How large is the spokeshave.

Jack, It’s 11” long with a 2-3/4” blade.

Dennis, that plastic think is only to allow the lighting to highlight the wood. I need better lighting in the shop. In the next month or 2, looking at making a shop cabinet to hold all of my hand tools and currently working on a saw til for my long saws. I’ll add some shavings when I shape the sides of the til. :-)

NICE WORK. I MADE ONE JUST LIKE IT FROM THE LEE VALLEY KIT ABOUT 5 YEARS AGO. I TOO USED WALNUT AND IT WAS FUN TO MAKE. IT WORKS GREAT AND IS MY FAVORITE SPOKE SHAVE.

Didn’t know these came as kits. Looks like fun and an inexpensive way to get MORE TOOLS!! Thanks for the resource.
