Tiger Maple Spoke Shave
Presented here, a Tiger Maple Spoke Shave (Draw Knife) with outrageous figure. It bears the initials W.C.H. with are most likely those of the maker as well as the owner. A spoke shave is used in reducing lengths of seasoned wood to wagon wheel spokes.
A craftsman making and using such a beautiful tool is evidence of an individual who takes pride in his work. It's right up there with using a Tiger Maple Rolling Pin for making piecrust and biscuits. You have to feel good working with something so beautiful. Whether a tool collector or a collector of figured maple, this is a gorgeous piece and can rightfully called folk art as it is a utilitarian object raised to another level of appreciation because of it's inherent beauty.
