I’m in the process of saddling a Red Oak seat blank to be used in a stick chair. My process is just like sharpening; course, medium, and polish only this time it is Aze, Scorp, Travisher and card scrapper.

I’ve found two types of Travishers on the market and expect there are others. Of my two, one is horned and the other is not.

I have better control using the one without horns on the right so I use it for finish work and the other is used for rough out.

As always YMMV.

At first I thought maybe a ‘horned travisher’ was some kind of bug?
Then I read, it’s for making chairs. #IAMAKLUTZ and forget about that old tool.
Thanks for re-education. #watching

I have the horned type travisher, but I have found this jig to minimize the scooping and scraping.

Captain,

LOL, it does kinda look like a bug you would not want to share a sleeping bag with.

Jim,

Thanks for the link.

If I were running a production shop something like that would be good. I have a table saw that mostly serves as a flat surface and dust gather instead of maker, and I like it that way.
