A Close Shave?

Hi Folks
Spent some time making a spokeshave, today. A tool I've been meaning to make for ages. Have a look.....
Not bad, eh? English Oak with an Ebony wear strip. Made the iron and brass knobs, too. Surprising how different a wooden shave feels to a metal one. Not just the weight, the balance, and the low angle cutter makes a big difference. Works real sweetly - so I'm fired up to make some more.
Cheers
Philly
