Read the review? Want to have a go yourself? Well one of the review kits wasn't used and BriMarc have generously allowed me to give it away as a prize. Simply answer the question below via Private Message to me and your name will go into the hat:

Q. Spokeshaves are often used by the chair-making fraternity, so name me three well-know chair makers...

Answers in by Noon on Monday 28th (that's Easter Monday), please. Good luck. :D

Cheers, Alf

Well after great personal effort to find an unbiased picker from the hat, the Old Man (for he it was) shut his eyes, picked a piece of paper from the reams therein, and the winner is:

Tony! =D> (I'd have thrown him back myself, so lucky for him it was an unbiased picker... :wink: )

The kit will be winging its way to you first thing tomorrow, Tony, and did I mention the winner has to post pictures of their handles...? :wink:

The answers were varied and often educational, so thank you to all of you who entered. Mike Dunbar and Sam Maloof tied for most frequently mentioned, with Chris having the distinction of not only entering but also being an answer. :D Thomas Chippendale got three mentions while poor John Brown only got one. Tsk...

Cheers, Alf

Wondered what that loud scream from a southerly direction was :lol:

Thanks Alf and particularly Alf's dad and Brimarc :wink:

I will try to make use of my lovely prize as soon as the current project is complete
