Homemade Spokeshave and Blade

Homemade Spokeshave and Blade

I could have bought one these old style wooden spokeshaves but decided it would be more fun to make one. I’ve never used this type before and always wanted to try one. I have a couple of Stanley 151’s, I actually prefer this new one. It’s more comfortable and works far better.

My Stanleys have terrible blades, they’re very thin, don’t hold an edge and for that reason they never get used. This week I also made a new blade for the Stanley, I didn’t make a video but it was easy to make and vastly improved. I may make a video at another time.

I also thought about making another one like this wooden spokeshave but with adjustable threaded posts and thumb screws. There isn’t any real need to make one like that as this works and adjusts perfectly well but would be an interesting build.

As always I'm happy to answer any questions.
