The travishers are offered in two different sweeps:

The Standard Sweep- 4 1/4" radius, this is the more versatile of the two sweeps that is able to create ultra concave areas. This is the recommended tool to start out with.

The Shallow Sweep- 6 1/2" radius, this tool you could think of as a smoothing plane, it removes the scalloped ridges of the more extreme sweep making scraping and sanding easier. 
Both of these sweeps are available in:

 Walnut or Cherry for $500

Curly Maple for $525

I'm always adding to my exotic stash so if interested in exotic travisher please feel free to ask what I have available prices range from $550~$700

If interested in ordering a travisher,  please send me an email with your preferred sweep and wood choice.

Please note that these are hand made tools and right now the current lead time is 24-26 months. 


  1. Dear Claire, can you make one out of Osage Orange? If you can not I would like to be on the list to receive a walnut one in the 3 3/4 radius please.

  2. Hi Claire, I met you at Handworks and put my name on your list to purchase one of your travishers. The above comments have me curious! I have over 50,000 feet of native hardwoods that I sell and was wondering if I could possibly send a select piece to you for making a travisher (maybe enough for a couple of them and leave the extra for your use?) I have Osage orange ready to go also. Thanks!

  3. Hey Claire! Long time. I hope all is well since school. I was telling a guy in my shop about chair making and mentioned a travisher. He had never heard of one so I looked them up online to show him a picture, and there you were making them. �� My shop is in early stages, but would love to chat business. Give me a shout.

  4. Standard Sweep. Cherry preferred, R Findlay

  5. Claire - add me to your list: I would like a Standard Sweep in walnut. Please let me know what your current turnaround time is.

    Thanks, Kevin

  8. This is an awesome tool! I waited about 9 months for it. Well worth the wait and the $500 cost. Works better than any of the other travishers I have. The the larger radius really does help reduce the amount of time I have to spend scraping. Also appreciated you blogs with photo instructions how to sharpen. Thanks, Claire!
