Used to rough cut the inside surface of the staves. Made from high-speed steel (HSS), this hollowing draw knife presents a variable cutting radius depending on its position. Hold it level for a 6" radius cut or progressively tilt it toward 30 degrees and the cut radius gradually moves toward 3". The gull-wing shape balances the pull resistance.
The shave horse offered here is designed to compliment the tools and process shown. It offers the critical ability to hold the jointer plane in position and the stationary round bottom plane for smooth, accurate and relaxed stave sculpting. For more information, see Methods and Craft.
Ideal for finish planning stave edges and the outside surface of the staves. Iron depth can be hammer-adjusted with great precision. Construction is cypress clad in walnut. This plane is very productive and best used with the horsehead positioning fixture as shown in Method and Craft. 24" long, this jointer is tuned and ready for your workshop.
Ideal for dressing the inside surface of the staves. Used to smooth the inside of the bucket after initial (temporary) stave assembly and also used as a stationary plane, held in the fixture to finish-cut the inside surface after being roughed out with the hollowing draw knife. 9" long with a 4" sole radius. This plane is tuned to cut more heavily in the iron center as compared to the edge. For more information, see Methods & Craft.
