    Most of the Anant India-Made planes are a bit rough and need more than a little work to make them produce an acceptable shaving (if it is even possible). I’m not sure about their spokeshaves. The Veritas alternative is much pricier – and will work well right out of the box – with just a bit of honing:

    Priced between the bottom of the line Anant and top of the line Lee Valley are two lines. Anant Kamal is a reputedly higher quality line by Anant, and Kunz which is German made. Both lines are carried by Highland Woodworking. I do not have personal experience with either line but the general consensus I have read on the various WW boards is they fall squarely between the two both in quality and price. YMMV.

    I look at this and get an image of the guys on “This Old House” trying to figure out ‘What Is It”, and one of them says, “I had a girl friend once who shaved her legs with one of those.”

    By the way – the traditional hand tools for shaping chair bottoms include:
    Gutter Adze aand possible a 1-hand adze
    Inshave – or possibly a Large Scorp
    a Travisher

    Spokeshaves are generally too small for seat bottoms

      Fred: You are absolutely correct. I am a Windsor chair maker and have never used a spoke-shave on the seat, they work great for the spindles. Whomever wrote the add for this company has his head you know where.
