It's part sculpting, part carving, part planing. Using it, I dance with the wood. Of course the wood always leads but for me the spokeshave lends the best feedback sensing how grain flows, and reverses direction. All of his posts are worth reading, and I'm linking them here to assist their findability.
Thank you Mr. Sellers for uploading them!
I'll be going heavily into spokeshaves while shaping the desk table supports for our library. Here they stand, rough alignment and jointing work in progress for the weekend. Suerte!
