What sort of spokeshave would I need to best shape a neck? Any other options?
Some other options:
plane (small one)
4" grinder with 36grit or bandsaw etc to rough shape then use block plane or a no. 4 plane, sanding board and belt , spokeshave is best to shape up near the headstock while a tool with a straight flat base like a plane or suroform is best for the straight section.
Drawknife and 5/8" round SurForm
I use a Japanese saw file. It has a rough side and a fine side. The rough side really can hog out material. And, it doesn't load up like traditional rasps. I got mine from Rockler.
