Seth Elliott and I buy the best old drawknives we can find, then clean, tune and sharpen them.
These travishers are made specifically for chair seats. Brass soles are attached to the walnut bodies for increased wear resistance.
This tool reams the arm stump and leg holes in the seat to a six-degree taper. A set screw adjusts the blade’s depth of cut.
A variety of sizes to cut tenons on legs, posts and spindles. Sets are also available.
Oak blanks are split from an log to ensure straight grained, knot-free chair parts. They are shipped green (wet).
These crisp, well-proportioned chair turnings are riven (split) from a hard maple log and hand turned when still green. Hard maple is extremely strong and holds a sharp edge — riving ensures straight grain for strength.
