I am working on a Danish Bow Saw. Being a wood snob, I opted to use a piece of curly maple I had stockpiled to make the frame. In shaping and smoothing, I made the mistake of using a low angle spokeshave and it caused some rather unsightly tearout. While it is a tool I intend to use, I want it to look good too.
At the moment I am leaning towards dying the wood, then using the CA and sawdust method to disguise the flaws. Any thoughts or recommendations? Any good shaping tools to use on this other than sandpaper/rasp and a lot of patience?
Thanks for your help!
