Paul starts with shaping the wooden aspect of the fly swat as well as laminating the handle. Then the shape is refined with the chisel, spokeshave, rasp and scraper.

    What is the length? It’s 3/8 by 7/8 but I didn’t get the length.

    Thanks, Bill

    Enjoyable video, I like shaping with spokeshave. Think I prefer the other workshop it has more caricature. To me this looks more like an office.

    I love projects that can use up scraps and cut offs from bigger projects.

    I finished shaping my handle. It feels great, ready for the next part… what kind of leather and leatherworking tools do I need?

    Love your trailer on the flyswatter video. Is there a way we can get the video without paying the $15 a month membership

      Hi Don, it should give you the option on the info page to buy access to the whole project. If this doesn’t work, contact us through the contact us here link below these comments.
