Why use a spokeshave?

Spokeshaves are an essential tool when it comes to manual woodworking and woodwork projects. The principle purpose of a spokeshave is to smooth out rough edges and create attractive round shapes for objects such as bows and arrows, chair legs and wheel spokes. 

In general, they are used to flatten out complex shapes in wooden objects, making them fit for the purpose you require. The flat spokeshave is used for cutting convex shapes and is a great tool for chamfering. A round spokeshave on the other hand is best for cutting concave shapes. Sometimes you will need both to complete a job, but often only a flat spokeshave is required.
