Great accomplish! Nothing like a hand made tool that works so well. At the end of your video I liked how you showed how accurate your spoke shaver performed. Really paper thin shavings…. nice!

Brilliant idea… Ole Stumpy Nubs made one of those into a scrub plane… this is an even cooler idea!

Hello Simon,

Very impressive work!
I´m in the process to make a spokeshave and I liked your design.
My doubt is, in a design like yours, the blade is bevel down or up?
Thank you in advance.
