Last week I posted my first try at building one of these – got some good advice that the proportions were wrong, so made the adjustments and finished all 3.
A friend of mine did the machining for HSS shafts and used Easy Wood Tools carbide inserts for the cutters. The handles are hard maple. Purposely made them all a bit different so maybe I can identify the the right tool by the handle….
Had a bit of an issue with the “rustic” handle…..It cracked during assembly…..so the learning continues…will replace it in time.
7/8” brass ferrules are from Lee Valley and the finish is Tung Oil.
Thanks for looking.
