One of the things I love about chairmaking is also one of the things I hate about chairmaking: You have to shape curved parts where the grain can change direction in three or four places on the same piece.

The Veritas Scraper Shave is the solution to this problem. It allows you to take fine finishing cuts like you would with a scraper, but you can bear down on the work with immense control like you can with a spokeshave.
