You’ll see a lot of April Fools’ Pranks on the Web today. This unique spokeshave however, strikes me as a bit more clever than most. This tool is suppose to aid in making tapered dowels. Like most good April Fools’ pranks, it’s almost believable.
Lee Valley is a purveyor of fine wood working tools and a place where I spend way to much money. It is also one of the best mail order businesses I have ever dealt with. The catalog is pretty to the point of being lustful (yeah, I’m a tool junkie). Great people and great products (no fooling!).
