My hero Mafe made a cool bunch of scraper shaves and a rack to hold them, I liked it so much I had to make one of my own. I really like the oriental look so I did the same thing (only different) I was in such a good moo0d that day I decided to build a rack for my chisels too! After that I just kept on going (over several days of course) I made a kerfmaker, a center finder, 2 setup gauges an awl from a long piece of keystock. A pencil shave which I have to tell you works wonderfully, I used it to make some walking sticks for my wife, grandson and I for when we go to Smithville Park. I made a t-square stop for my metric ruler, a small mallet from a bronze “T”. I made a grease pot from Mafe’s influence and a hand held belt sander for sanding on the lathe. nI also made a marking gauge with a wheel blade. I just love making tools, even more I love using the tools that I lovingly made, especially when they look and work so well. I will be posting some of the other projects I’ve been working on. Coming up are some scroll saw projects, stuff for the shop, and
a shave horse.
