Black vs. Wood – making the choice!

Both versions of James Mursell’s travisher are excellent tools and will give long service. The blades in all versions are all the same and are made by Ben Orford.

The notes below may assist in deciding which is the better tool for you. 

Black

  • Harder wearing than wood
  • A little heavier than wood
  • Nice heft and warm in the hand
  • The body is water/weatherproof, so ideal for use outside
  • Used in preference to ‘Wood’ in The Windsor Workshop

Wood

  • The original travisher from James Mursell
  • In use around the world for over 10 years
  • Hard maple body looks and feels beautiful
  • Light in weight

Chair Making Courses

No previous experience is necessary to successfully complete a Windsor chair making course and yet experienced woodworkers will still be fully challenged. Individual guidance and assistance will be provided as appropriate, and every effort will be made to ensure a rewarding and enjoyable course.

Chair Making Book

Written by James Mursell, this book was the first new book about the making and design of Windsor chairs for over 10 years. It was written with a broad readership in mind and is aimed at existing Windsor chair makers and also at those who are contemplating making their first chair.

Tool Testimonials

“This tool is phenomenal. I bought two, one for myself and another for my Windsor chairmaker instructor. Compared to the other travishers I have used, yours is very good to work with and everyone who has tried it loves it. I just ordered a second one and your two spokeshaves which I trust will be as enjoyable to use. Thanks again for making such great tools.” LG (USA) 2015
