Wood shavings can be more than just wood scraps to be swept away.
Woodworker Neill M. puts simple messages on them…not after the shavings are made, though. His technique reverses the order, as shown in the photos. I used a Low Angle Jack, L.A. block, #4, and BU smoother and they all worked well. The key is just steady pressure and pace, plus a sharp edge, of course.

Xmas is around the corner, learn this creative use of shavings as ribbons from woodworker Chris Wong of B.C.: http://flairwoodworks.wordpress.com/?s=ribbons. It makes your gift really stand out, doesn’t it?!
