Seems we can add spoke shave to that collection of tools.Cool work!
On the discussion of the name of the device, I always called them a draw knife, but I have heard a lot of name to include bark spud, bark peeler, shave knife and peeling spuds, among others.
I certainly became acquainted with them on various build projects around the old homestead. Extremely useful device that helped tame the west!
That is exactly what I was thinking. I had not heard of a Peeling Spud (other than like Ben in KP.) Funny how many names there are for certain things. There is also a froe though I think slightly different typical use.a drawknife and spud are two different things. A drawknife has two handles and is used for cutting the bark off. It is great for carving things like handles, bows etc. as well. A spud is used for slipping the bark off.
I learned about a Froe from the Woodwright's Workshop where he (also) made it from an old leaf spring. He used it for making cedar shingles along with a wooden mallet.That is exactly what I was thinking. I had not heard of a Peeling Spud (other than like Ben in KP.)

Also, love the mason jar handle! Will have to show Hubby as a hint (the real hint will be when I say, You need to make one - Hint hint!)
I love those old seats. There is at least one company that sells those, all painted up on fancy bases, but those don't have the kind of character yours does.another farm junk project.
a stool from a tractor seat, a chunk of 1 inch pipe and a base.
