Working with Hands - James E. Price

  Making a Thin Boxwood Wedge 2 of 2  

The preform is inserted into the inclined cavity and all material projecting
above the hardwood is pared away with a chisel.

Then, the preform is planed until the plane starts removing shavings
from the hardwood. I used an old Stanley 4 with a Hock blade in it.

The preform is then pried out of the cavity and now it is a perfect wedge.

In the cavity Is a completed boxwood wedge. To the left is a wedge made
by securing a preform in the slanted cavity.
