Scraper shave

Hi Chaps

Knocked this up today its a scraper shave in rosewood and maple, it was tricky as my metalworking lathe is blocking the access to my face vice, but with some clamps and a length of ply as a plaining stop I did it.
The blade was cut from an old hardpoint saw.

I think it will need a brass ware plate on the maple block, but it works very well.

Thanks Tony.

No job in particular, I do love spokeshaving stuff so a scraper shave for finishing and difficult wood is a good tool to have.

Rounded base on is next.

I’m looking at some of the ‘tools’ I have ‘just knocked up’ and they don’t look anything like those! Amazing.
