Taper tool DIY post
from old saw blade and a piece of wood.
Making my shaving horse I realized that I needed a taper tool for future projects, so I tried to find an old one with no luck, and then I checked the prices for a new and realized I wanted to make my own…
After some looking at the web I found this page: www.greenwoodworking.com and there a fine version that should be quite easy to make from some scrap and a spin on the lathe, so I went for it.
Thank you to greenwoodworking!
You can see the full DIY on the blog here: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/28109
