And here is my freshest tool, just finished today :
It's a spokeshave, inspired from Veritas, but I think other makers have also used this design.
La Belle Note - Spokeshave
Edit Feb 2015 :
Experience shows that working in hardwood with the bare wood sole of the spokeshave would damage it rapidly, so I decided to add a brass sole to this tool.
Here are some pics of the final version of the tool :
The brass sole is fixed with three screws (head filed flush) and epoxied.
The pocket for this brass inlaying job has been cut with my router plane, see this post to see a video of the work being done.

Just to say I have modified the initial post to show a new feature I have added to this tool, which is a brass sole.
