Shaping the bow into a cylinder

Secure the bow blank in your shaving horse and start shaping the piece with a drawknife. Bracing the end of the stock against your chest, drawknife the blank into a cylinder (left); work with the wood grain throughout. As shown in the diagram opposite, make the final diameter of the bow % inch; it should taper down to ^ inch starting about 8 inches from each end. As you work on the thinner end of the workpiece, reposition the blank in the shaving horse so that less stock extends out from under the crossbar. Switch to a spokeshave to give the bow a smoother surface finish (above), handling it as you did the drawknife.
