Spokeshaves are amazing. Me, I flunked wood shop.

But I find that if I sit on a bench and make a few piles of shavings with that thing, maybe wearing a cap and overalls of some sort, and smoke a pipe, I feel like a real authentic craftsman.

When I'm in a contemplative, woodworking state of mind, and ready to go back to actual work on the Sharpie, I put away the spokeshave and fire up the chain saw. (It's quicker and I don't work to very tight tolerances anyway).
