@derekcohen mentioned in the General Woodworking forum about a dresser he had built that was featured in the current issue of Fine Woodworking magazine. I didn't want to detract from his topic my post, since his work was so beautiful, so I am posting here. In that same issue is an article about spokeshaves, written by Peter Galbert. Since I know nothing about spokeshaves, I thought his article was quite informative. I have been interested for some time in purchasing a spokeshave, (no I am not going to build a wagon wheel), so I looked to see what he recommended as a first purchase. He recommended a Stanley 151, which he said could be had from the used tool market. I'm not in the mood lately to rehab used tools, so his next recommendation was the Lie-Nielsen Boggs spokeshave. I checked on the L-N website, and of course, they were out of stock. I knew Highland Woodworking also sold L-N tools, so I check there. Out of stock there also, and they plainly stated they weren't taking back orders for this tool. Oh well, back to the computer and start looking at EBay. Tried Craig's list, no luck there. Anyone have any recommendations on other used tool web sites? I can always get one from Lee Valley, but I would like to stay within the article's recommendations if possible. I should have done this first. Just checked Ebay, and they have a lot of them for sale.
