Well what can I say ? just…......AT LAST I was able to finish this toolwork. The hard part was to adjust the slope of the sole to make the shave to cut, it is not the same using brass than wood like ebony or lignum vitae
Hope you like it ! I accept orders

Nice spokeshave but I was expecting something either very PINK or something with the actual shape of a flamingo somewhere.

It does look like it is a nice tool and appears to work very well. Nice job.

Very nice. Looks like it’s cutting well. I use spokeshaves allot in what I do so I can appreciate a good one. Where did you get the blade?

Good work on this. You did a great job on shaping this. Love the way it fits the hands.

Yet again you have made a tool that I want to reach out and touch. The end grain shaving shot is my favorite.

El que la sigue la consigue Julio, precioso bastrén y excelentes prestaciones. Como toda la familia de herramientas-joya Flamingo, que crece despacio pero con aplomo.

Enhorabuena number one!!
