Had a great day yesterday at Weird and Wonderful Wood.
Good crowds, lots to see and buy and I met and chatted with a lot of the usual suspects.
Nick Gibbs, editor of Living Woods magazine, was demonstrating making whirligigs on his stand up shavehorse.
I bought a couple of nice old spokeshaves…
The small one has a convex sole – useful for shaving into curves.
The larger one is a Stanley No 53 type although there is no makers mark. The sole is hinged and allows for fine adjustment with the brass screw – a tool much beloved of John Brown and James Krenov.
