Travisher – deluxe

Top of the range travisher for Windsor chair makers. Made from the tough and dense polymer Delrin and with a brass insert in front of the blade.


This is the premium version of James Mursell’s well known tool. It is wonderfully heavy in the hand and the brass wear insert in front of the blade should mean that the tool will last a lifetime of normal use. The blade is made by Ben Orford, who is famous for his woodworking tools and knives.

This tool will serve you brilliantly in shaping Windsor chair seats, the backs of cricket bats and the shaping of stringed musical instruments.

This versatile tool will create all the curves that you will need for shaping the tops of chair seats. It works particularly well across the grain and will take both aggressive and fine cuts. The position of the blade can be altered with the grub screws set into the front of the body.
