Reccomendations on usage of drawknives.
Bevel down. With the bevel facing down, a draw knife makes a cut that rises from the wood and prevents it from cutting too deep. Using a draw knife with the bevel down is useful for hollowing out wooden pieces. However, this causes the blade to dull faster.
Bevel up. Using a draw knife with the bevel facing up gives you a higher amount of control over the tool. It allows you to remove finer shavings and make deeper cuts.
The best way to use a draw knife is while sitting on a shaving horse, which safely holds your wooden piece in place. Also, make sure the grain of your wood runs parallel to the shaving horse and perpendicular to the blade. Positioning your wood this way keeps the drawknife from cutting against the wood fiber.
To cut with a draw knife, gently pull the blade slightly upwards towards you. Hold the handles lower or higher depending on the depth of the cut you’re looking for.
For wide workpieces, you need a drawknife big enough to fit over it and drawknife with curved handles will be better for this purpose.
