A spokeshave is a woodworking tool designed for shaping and smoothing curved surfaces on wood. It typically consists of a blade that can be adjusted and secured in a metal body with handles on each end. The blade is positioned at a low angle to the workpiece and can be used for various tasks such as shaping chair spindles, rounding edges, and refining curved surfaces. The tool is called a spoke shave because it is commonly used in shaping the spokes of wheels, but it is versatile and can be employed for a range of woodworking applications.

Safety measures and precautions

  1. Eye Protection:
    • Always wear safety glasses or goggles to protect your eyes from wood chips, dust, and any potential flying debris.
  2. Secure Workpiece:
    • Secure the workpiece firmly in a vise or clamp before starting to work. This ensures stability and reduces the risk of the workpiece moving unexpectedly.
  3. Sharp Blades:
    • Keep the spoke shave blades sharp. Dull blades can cause the tool to slip, leading to accidents. Regularly sharpen and hone the blades according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
  4. Proper Grip:
    • Hold the spoke shave with a firm and comfortable grip. Ensure that both hands are positioned safely away from the path of the blade.
  5. Correct Direction:
    • Always move the spoke shave in the direction of the grain. This helps prevent tear-out and ensures a smoother cut.
  6. Controlled Pressure:
    • Apply controlled and even pressure to the spoke shave. Avoid excessive force, as it can lead to loss of control and may cause the tool to dig into the wood unexpectedly.
  7. Mind Blade Depth:
    • Adjust the blade depth appropriately. Setting the blade too deep may cause the tool to grab the wood aggressively, while a shallow setting may result in inefficient cutting.
  8. Work at a Comfortable Height:
    • Work at a comfortable height to maintain good control and visibility. Avoid awkward positions that may compromise your balance or control over the tool.
  9. Clear Workspace:
    • Keep your work area clean and free of clutter. This reduces the risk of tripping and allows for better control of the spoke shave.
  10. Appropriate Clothing:
    • Wear appropriate clothing, such as long sleeves and closed-toe shoes, to protect your skin from wood chips and potential splinters.
  11. Mind Your Surroundings:
    • Be aware of your surroundings, especially if working in a shared space. Communicate with others to avoid accidental collisions or disruptions.
  12. Follow Manufacturer’s Instructions:
    • Adhere to the manufacturer’s guidelines and recommendations for the specific spoke shave model you are using.
  13. Training:
    • If you are new to using a spoke shave or any woodworking tool, seek proper training and guidance from experienced woodworkers. Understanding the tool and its operation is essential for safe use.
