Sharpening Scraper Tools
The Traviscraper and Spokescraper are both supplied with the blade sharpened on two sides. These edges should last for several hours use, but will in time need to be resharpened.
This first video shows the resharpening process.
When the blade has been sharpened three times, it will need to be reground before resharpening. This process exposes new metal and allows a good burr to be produced.
The second video shows how to regrind and sharpen the blade.
NB Do not grind the blade before each sharpening, otherwise you will loose metal and the blade will quickly get smaller. New blades are available if necessary, but under normal conditions the blade should last for years!

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.
“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
