My parents gave me a Veritas spokeshave kit for Christmas. Of course, I wasted no time in finding a piece of wood to turn into a shavings-maker. This kit had great directions and solid hardware; easily put together as long as the directions are followed. I used a piece of wood that my friend gave me; he said it was mahogany, but it sure has much more closed grain than any mahogany I have ever worked with. Unfortunately, I lost the piece of brass somewhere in transit, but I had some extra ebony lying around… it worked perfect. Thanks for looking. Tanto auguri a tutti e felice anno nuovo da Napoli!
