Anarchist's 2016 Gift Guide, Day 7: Veritas Spokeshave

Furnished content.


veritas_img_6745Like a good French rasp, a spokeshave will open your eyes to a new world. Furniture parts that were once simply flat or round can easily be made curved and subtly faceted. And though the type of spokeshave you prefer is pretty personal, it's hard to argue that the most successful and copied model is the Stanley 151 shave.

Furnished content.


screen-shot-2016-12-07-at-9-16-20-amI know, I know. If you've been reading this blog, my blog or following me on social media for while, you're already familiar with my deep-seated love for the Benchcrafted Skraper (what is it with the tools I like and funny spellings?!).

Where to Learn About Digital Woodworking

Furnished content.


Machining furniture parts on a CNCIn my last post, I covered some of the big issues in learning to use CNCs. Woodworkers first startingto use CNCs in particular benefit from in-person learning because of all the idiosyncrasies that are present when youre designing and machining wood with a digital tool.
