Pinnacle spokeshaves at Woodcraft?

5 posts in this topic

I doubt that's a Woodpecker's product, Woodpecker's forte is CNC machined aluminum.

I could be wrong, but most Woodpecker's work is pretty recognizable.

I believe Woodpecker closed out their pinnacle line and rebranded everything under their own name. The Pinnacle blades is a different company.

I know Rob Cosman talked about them earlier this summer/spring and spoke very highly of them. Made by Pinnacle with an IBC blade. Definitely on my wish list, I got my cheap Stanley knockoff 151 working alright now but not what I would call a pleasure to use.

      Hi Gary nice to see you in these parts again.
    • Chopsticks
      Some of these questions are general ones about chopsticks, and some are specific to the 'chopstick master from BCTW'. Does anyone on here own that kit, or have experience with it?  I'm just looking to ask a few specific questions (but if anyone can give it a thumbs up or down about the kit, that would also be nice). What are the dimensions of finished chopsticks? In the BCTW kit, 2 parts of the jig are labeled '2mm' and '5mm' but I can't figure out what that means. Also, how big are the blanks you should start with? Approx how long does it take to make a set? The videos (either with hand made jigs or the BCTW kit) make it look like it takes 5 minutes....I get that you're not planing much wood, but it looks too good to be true, so I wanted a first hand opinion. Is mineral oil the way to go for chopstick finish? Is there any finish that can withstand constant use (and dishwasher abuse) ? Any particular woods that  you guys prefer for chopsticks? Is buying a kit like the BCTW worth it, or should I take the time to make a jig? Edit: I'm wondering also, if there is a good way to make them with powered tools to speed up the process instead of all by hand...not making hundreds, but might make a couple dozen for gifts, so I'm wondering if using a tapering jig with my stationary tools (bandsaw/TS/planer/drum sander) is worth considering...thoughts?
